The first volume of the set are the introductory lectures in each of the topics of the series. It provides an insight into the view of knowledge and learning of the time. Literary materials are thus made available to many ambitious women and men whose education was cut short since they had to contribute to their family finances or who had to support themselves. They could however cultivate themselves with pleasurable daily reading (p. 5).
