Excerpt from Graining: Ancient and Modern

The chief object of the writer of this book is to provide instruction for those of our trade, especially young men, who desire to become proficient in graining, for in these days little opportunity is provided to learn any trade in the building line, least of all in the specialty of graining.

A series of articles by the writer entitled "Practical Graining" were published in 1889-1890 in the House Painting and Decorating Magazine of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were later issued in book form and have been out of print for several years.

Frequent requests for copies have induced the writer to issue the present volume, which will be found to contain added information on this subject.

My thanks are due to Mr. James Kay of St. Louis, Missouri, for information concerning the antiquity of graining; also to The W. J. Dobinson Engraving Co. of Boston, for excellent plates; and to The Norwood Press for excellence of typography and composition.
