Excerpt from Etching Etchers

I'he first edition of this work has been for some time ex hansted, and copies of it are only to be had occasionally from dealers in rare books, at fancy prices. In the present edition the book takes its permanent form, for it is stereotyped, and care has therefore been taken about the revision of it. Besides revising what was already written, I have brought my work down to the latest dates by adding notices of the most recent etchings of importance, and by explaining the newest practical improvements in the craft of etching itself which are of proved utility and accepted by eminent workmen. The present edition contains, indeed, more than two hundred pages of entirely new matter, so that it may be considered as a supplement to the first. There are also eight illustrations which did not appear in the first edition.
