Excerpt from The Ornamental Draughtsman and Designer: Being a Series of Practical Instructions and Examples of Freehand Drawing in Outline and From the Round, Examples of Design in the Various Styles of Ornament Adapted to Practice; Together With a Series of Practical Papers on Form and Colour, as Applied To As regards the character of the present volume, and the principle upon which its matter has been prepared and its examples selected, little is needed to be said more than this - That the leading principle is the beginning with the simmer lines and combinations of lines; each example, or lesson as it may be termed, is so designed specially as to lead up to the example or lesson next in succession. Thus each advanced lesson cannot be mastered until the pupil or draughts man has thoroughly understood and been able to draw the lines which make up the example immediately preceding. The pupil is thus led up by a regular gradation of lessons or examples from the simplest to the most complicated of subjects and having thus a foundation, he is able to build up, so to say, with security and certainty of result the more important departments of his study and practice.
