In the preparation of this book the author had in mind the special needs of the student and beginner in the work. As both writers are of the staff of the University of Minnesota, they have had ample opportunity to learn what is required for a book of the kind, and have most excellently met that demand. To this did numerous examples are given representative of the different kinds of molding, with suitable illustrations to supplement the text.
