REFLECTIONS ON THE DECLINE OF SCIENCE IN ENGLAND,
AND ON SOME OF ITS CAUSES.
by

CHARLES BABBAGE

DEDICATION.

HAD I INTENDED TO DEDICATE THIS VOLUME, I SHOULD HAVE INSCRIBED
IT TO A NOBLEMAN WHOSE EXERTIONS IN PROMOTING EVERY OBJECT THAT
CAN ADVANCE SCIENCE REFLECT LUSTRE UPON HIS RANK.  BUT THE
KINDNESS OF HIS NATURE MIGHT HAVE BEEN PAINED AT HAVING HIS NAME
CONNECTED WITH STRICTURES, PERHAPS TOO SEVERELY JUST.  I SHALL,
THEREFORE, ABSTAIN FROM MENTIONING THE NAME OF ONE WHO WILL FEEL
THAT HE HAS COMMANDED MY ESTEEM AND RESPECT.

C. BABBAGE.


DORSET STREET,
MANCHESTER SQUARE,
29th April, 1830.
