From the foreword:
"The majority of the pages are illustrations. Pictures tell more than can be explained in many pages. Only enough reading matter has been included to unify the illustrations.
The purpose of the book is not that the pupil copy and repeat or adhere to its pages rigidly. It is hoped they will stimulate interest and create a desire to do original work. The book includes the fruit of many years' experience
in both teaching and professional practice. In it are given those problems found to yield the greatest practical response in the briefest period".

A classic early art instruction title, scarce in such good condition.     [Book ID # 1258]
