Certainly, the Principles of Light and Shade form by far the larger portion of this MS. which consists of two separate parts; still, the materials are far from being finally arranged. It is also evident that he here investigates the subject from the point of view of the Physicist rather than from that of the Painter. The plan of a scheme of arrangement suggested in No. III and adopted by me has been strictly adhered to for the first four Books.
