This work has been undertaken in the hope of meeting the increased demand for simple wood-carving patterns. The rubbings have been taken from the best specimens of Jacobean furniture, and the details have been drawn in and shaded most carefully in order to reproduce the effect of the carving as accurately as possible. For the purpose of making her selection, the Author has visited many important private collections. The Introduction gives a clear explanation of the method of reproduction and also many valuable suggestions.
"To the amateur wood-carver and elementary student in the craft, this collection or thirty simple examples will be extremely useful. They are confined almost entirely to a flat form of decoration, therefore admirable exercises for beginners." - Art Workers' Quarterly.
