Modern Methods of Illustrating Books




Elliot Stock
















This work is part of the "Book-Lovers Library" series which was edited by Henry B. Wheatley (1838 - 1917). Wheatley was a historian, librarian and scholar of repute and editor of the Book-Lovers Library series. Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"The progress which has recently been made in the different arts by which books can be illustrated does not appear to be very generally or widely known. My object in writing this
little treatise has been to place such information on the subject as I could get together at the disposal of all those who are interested in the production of books, a large and ever increasing public."

"I have endeavoured to avoid giving technical details, except such as were necessary to make description intelligible. With a view of helping those who require fuller or more special information than the plan of the book permits, I have added in an Appendix a list of a few works --- not a bibliography, or an attempt at one — where the best information I know of
can be obtained."

"I have tried to indicate with what clearness I could the resources which are available for book illustration, and to show which of the various processes at the disposal of an author it is best for him to employ for any particular purpose."

This book has 247 pages followed by 12 pages of advertisement.
