The author states in the preface 'This work has been prepared with the hope of assisting to bring about a better style of imitating the various kinds of Marbling and Woods, and to convey an accurate idea of the methods adopted by the leading grainers. All Previously published works dealing with these branches of Art have merely illustrated the finished panel, and have not instructed the student by illustration, how to begin and proceed with the work. I have, by means of of the colored plates, to show how the work must be proceeded with stage by stage, in a practical manner, in order to arrive at the finished imitation. The letterpress description will also materially assist the student in his efforts. The imitation of Wood and Marble is always allowable where Wood and Metal would be employed by the architect'. ; Antique
