"The History of Engraving, from its Inception to the Time of Thomas Bewick," gives, "in a concise and popular form, such account of the history of engraving as it is possible to give within our limited knowledge of this debatable subject" The debates are not intrusive; and the matter supplies interestingly that knowledge of an important branch of art which would have otherwise to be sought in costly works. Origins, block books, early masters like Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein the younger, wood engraving in England, French and Italian schools; mezzotint; Bartolozzi and stipple; and the revival of wood engraving with Bewick, make up the handy book, which we hope will be continued in like manner to the present period. There is a complete index of proper names; and the sample reproductions of typical engravings are all that could be desired.
