SCIENCE LECTURES FOR THE PEOPLE.
DELIVERED IN MANCHESTER,
LONDON: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co. ; F. Warne & Co.
PREFACE TO THE FIFTH SERIES.
About 5,500 persons attended the eight lectures which have been delivered this season, and the audiences exhibited the same
interest and attention as they showed on former occasions.
It is to be understood that each lecturer is entirely responsible
for the statements as they appear in print.
Again we all have to thank those who have by their kind contributions rendered a continuation of the lectures possible; and I have to acknowledge the services of our treasurer, Mr.
Thos. Harrison, and to express my regret at his retirement.
H. E. ROSCOE. January, 1874.
