Excerpt from Essays and Addresses
On his return to Scotland he was appointed a lecturer in science at the Glasgow Free Church College; and it was at this period that his first book, "Natural Law in the Spiritual World," made its tremendous sensation, running through endless editions at home and abroad and in every language. The first edition of this book bears the imprint of 1883, and led to his promotion to a professorship in the same college.
The success of the opening address in the present volume, when reprinted, was as instantaneous, and even wider, than that of his first book.
Professor Drummond never seemed to have been troubled with any absorbing ambition to publish his work, and the list of volumes which bear his name is small; at least one of them being the result of finding a stenographer's in complete notes printed and for sale in a bookstore.
