The

|frefatt

work on Ornamental Penmanship is a task of greater magnitude, and requires more time and study, than any one who has not made the attempt would imagine. This, together with the fact, that if the best artists are engaged in its mechanical execution, its great cost may be given as a reason why no one has had the courage to publish an elaborate work of this description. The work which m now presented to the public is the result of fifteen years' labor, study, and experience, during all of which time the author has been engaged in teaching and designing penmanship, and unceasing in his efforts to improve the art. He has in fact endeavored to raise Penmanship from an art to a science to demonstrate that, from its rudiments to the highest preparation and completion of a

susceptible, it can be taught

In 1842, he designed and had published a series were for the first time explained and exemplified. The approval which that series met with, as evidenced by large sales and consequent frequent use, and the urgent requests made to him by teachers and others that he would publish a work on Ornamental Penmanship, have induced him to offer to the public the following Chirographical Designs, consisting of a series of

ject

Alphabets, carefully analyzed and finished, together with some other exercises in flourishing,

&c,

calculated to guide

and im-

prove the pupil.

Obnamental Penmanship, literally considered as such, has of late been brought to a higher state of perfection and finish than The Engraver, Lithographer, Designer, Letter Carver, Sign Writer, Stone Cutter, Punch Cutter, and Type Founder have manifested a spirit of emulation to excel in their respective branches of business; and it is in nowise Unreasonable to* suppose that a work of this kind, which exhibits with mathematical precision the shape and proportion of every variety of letters, will be an acceptable addition to their previous acquaintance with the subject, and materially assist them in ever attained before*

theif several vocations.

Neither trouble nor expense has been spared in order to secure the services of the best, steel engravers in the Union ; as ah The names of the artists, who engraved the different plates, will be found at evidence of this, the work will speak for itself. the bottom of every page.
