A book published in 1890

About the Author of the book, "Natural Law in the Spiritual World."

Henry Drummond was born near Stirling, Scotland, on 17 August, 1851. He was educated at the Universities of Edinburgh and Tübingen. His life was largely spent in the work of the Toynbee Order and in scientific and other travel. He accompanied Sir Archibald Geikie (Director-General of the Geological Survey) in a survey of the Rocky Mountains in 1878, made an exploration in Central Africa in 1884-85, and travelled widely in Australia and the Far East. He later became Professor of Natural Science at the College of the Free Church of Scotland.

I found this interesting old book yesterday. It was published in 1890 and is called "Natural Law in the Spiritual World" by Henry Drummond. It is about the Hermit Crab and parasites that live off of them. Then he parallels the crabs life and activities with the Spiritual world.

I enjoyed reading some of it. If you want to add a few "new" old (in usage in 1890) words to your vocabulary, then I would encourage you to check it out. The book cane be found online at the link below.
