The consequent defying, self-relying spirit in which, at sixteen, I set out as a bookseller with only my own small collection of books as a stock — not worth more than two pounds, I believe — led to my being quickly independent of all aid ; but it has not been all a gain, for I am now sensible that my spirit of self-reliance too often...

The change from the one condition to the other would no doubt take place contemporaneously with a change of skin At such times we know that, even when there is no change of form, the temporary softness of the organs often precludes the insect from feeding for a time, as, for instance, is the case...
עמוד 37 - ... feet; and these deluges of melted stone and aqueous deposits had been five times spread out alternately. The ocean which received such masses must have been deep; but again the subterranean forces exerted their power, and I now beheld the bed of that sea forming a chain of mountains more than seven thousand feet in altitude.
עמוד iii - Bretschneider. — ON THE KNOWLEDGE POSSESSED BY THE ANCIENT CHINESE OF THE ARABS AND ARABIAN COLONIES, and other Western Countries mentioned in Chinese Books.

He was born on the 30th of August 1805, at Bergen, where his father was a shipowner. After finishing his academical studies at Christiania, and evincing at an early age his predilection for natural science, he entered into priest's orders, and in 1830 became pastor at Kinn, in the diocese of Bergen.
