The first edition of this little work being out of print and still in demand, Dr. Shuttleworth has reproduced it in this volume, with the addition of a couple of chapters giving an account of an official inquiry in which he took part, on the systems of education of the feeble-minded. The results of this inquiry were embodied in a statute which is printed in the appendix. The book has been and will continue to be one of the best brief accounts of its subject in our language, and it is well that it has again been made available.
