Page 815 - Beagle,' as naturalist, I was much struck with certain facts in the distribution of the organic beings inhabiting South America, and in the geological relations of the present to the past inhabitants of that continent.

Page xxx - It has therefore become necessary, in order to give an opportunity to the Committees of doing justice to the several Communications, that each Author should prepare an Abstract of his Memoir, of a length suitable for insertion in the published Transactions of the Association, and that he should send it, together with the original Memoir, by book-post, on or before addressed thus— 'General Secretaries, British Association, 22 Albemarle Street, London, \V.
Page 504 - It is believed that most of the words — as distinguished from their pronunciation — in use have been recorded in the publications of the English Dialect Society or elsewhere. But it is better to record them again than to leave them unrecorded. Nor should it be forgotten in this connection that a word of ten bears a different shade of meaning in one place from what it bears in another. In recording any words, care should therefore be taken to seize not only the exact sound, but the exact signification,...
Page 495 - For these and such other villages and places as may appear to be suitable, the Committee propose to record — (1) Physical types of the inhabitants ; (2) Current traditions and beliefs ; (3) Peculiarities of dialect ; (4) Monuments and other remains of ancient culture ; and (5) Historical evidence as to continuity of race. % All communications should be addressed to ' THE SECRETARY OF THE ETHNOGRAPHIC SURVEY, British Association, Burlington House, London, W.
