Summary
"The special preparation of this treatise on the general subject of beauty and perfect form, has been prompted by the observation that English literature is marvelously poor in aesthetic treatises, while a very general and earnest demand exists for suitable text books in this department of study. The importance of the study indeed can hardly be overrated, whether regarded in its relations to the culture of art generally and the right interpretation and enjoyment of art-creations of whatever kind, or to the mere personal ends of personal culture, since most vitally connected with all intellectual and moral culture is the familiar knowledge of the nature of the beautiful as related to the true and the good. Especial care has been taken to observe the strictest method in the whole development of the study, and to ground the teachings on the firmest foundations of philosophical truth and to exhibit each part of the system in its exact relations to the whole and to every other part. When it is used as a class book for instruction, the judicious teacher will accordingly be careful to omit, at least in the first studies, such portions as are too abstract or foreign to the customary range of thought in the pupil"--Preface.
