This illustrated book, prepared as a course of instruction for art students covers Principles of Perspective, Parallel and Angular Perspective, Representation of Objects in Oblique Positions and much more. In this book, ‘linear’ perspective only is treated of. By this is meant, the representation of the appearance of the outlines of objects, from a specified Station Point, by means of lines, showing only the apparent changes of for as their position, with regard to the spectator, varies. The book is in good condition but with yellowing, foxing and marking to pages. Some of the pages have been re-attached to the spine with sellotape. The cover is faded and shows some wear and tear (bottom and top of spine and rubbing at edges). The frontispiece has the name of a previous owner crossed out.
Published in 1909, this is a book for collectors or those interested in the teaching of art principles in the early 20th century.
