Excerpt from Cathcart's Literary Reader: A Manual of English Literature; Being Typical Selections From Some of the Best British and American Authors From Shakespeare to the Present Time, Chronologically Arranged, With Biographical and Critical Sketches, and Numerous Notes, Etc

The recognition of distinctively scientific writers as contributors to letters is continued. In its early days science was dry and almost repellent to all save its favored students; but its modern exponents have not failed to see the importance of presenting it in attractive guise, and the writings of Agassiz, Gray, Dana, Lyell, Tyndall, Huxley, and others abound in passages of great beauty even when judged by the standards of pure literature.
