Excerpt from Rough Draft of a Manual of Indian Sylviculture

This book is no more than what it professes to be, viz., a Rough Draft of a Manual embodying especially for the use of Indian students the general principles of sylviculture.

It originated in this wise. In 1881, when instruction was given for the first time at the Forest School, Mr. Fisher and I were asked to prepare a Manual of Forestry to take the place of the lectures. The task of bringing out the Sylviculture portion of the book fell to me. As the undertaking was a very large one and required more experiencF than a single man possessed, Mr. R. Thompson joined us in 1882, and I was relieved of that portion of the work which relates to the special application of general principles in the cultivation and treatment of our forests and trees. Thus my allotted task has now been completed.

In carrying it out I have never had the time or the opportunity to complete the entire book in manuscript before publishing it. As each section, indeed often each Article, was written, it was sent to press, and so when the later parts came to be written in the same piece-meal fashion, I constantly felt the necessity of suppressing, modifying or adding to was already in print. Nay more than this. Owing to special duties which absorbed all my time, I have frequently, for months, been compelled to lay the work aside until I had once more leisure to resume it. Indeed on one occasion not a word was added to the manuscript for more than a year. Even when able to prosecute the work, I could make for myself time only at nights in the solitude of our forest camps. Such being the case, it is not surprising that the first page was printed in November 1885, while the last one is only just leaving the press after a lapse of three years. During this time I have also been preparing in Urdu a course of forestry and the allied sciences for the use of candidates for the Forester's certificate, part of which course has already been published. It will thus be readily conceded that the circumstances in which this Draft has been written and published have been conducive neither to unity of ideas, plan or arrangement, nor even to the little amount of literary polish that is generally held to be sufficient in an educational work on a scientific subject.
