Excerpt from An Essay on the Causes of the Variety of Complexion and Figure in the Human Species: To Which Are Added, Animadversions on Certain Remarks Made on the First Edition of This Essay, by Mr. Charles White, in a Series of Discourses Delivered Before the Literary and Philosophical Society of Mauchester in England

A short treatise also of the celebrated Camper's upon this subject was published at Utrecht by his son in 1791. But it is formed on a plan, not contradictory indeed to that which I have adopted, but so different from it in its object, and the mode of conducting it, that, if it had been published much earlier, I could have derived little aid from it. After a few general remarks at the beginning, the remainder of his in genious'dissertation, which, however, is combatted, in some of its most important principles, by Blumenbach, is calculated rather for painters than for the great body of even sensible, and well informed readers.

To the former edition I annexed some strictures on Lord Kaims' dissertation on the original diversity of mankind. Be sides these, which I have thought proper to retain in the pre sent, 1 have added some animadversions on certain remarks made on that edition, and on the general subject, by Mr. Charles White, in a series of discourses delivered by him be fore the literary and philosophical swiety of Manchester in England and published in Londorr in quarto in 1799.
