PREFACE
TO
THE
SECOND
AND
THIRD
EDITIONS.
HE
extreme
range
of
subjects
included
under
Historic
Ornament
necessarily
implies
considerable
restriction
and
condensation
in
text
and
illustration
in
one
small
volume,
yet
care
has
been
taken
in
the
selec-
tion
of
types
to
show
the
essentials
and
character-
istics
of
national
styles,
and
the
evolution
or
develop-
ment
of
design
in
various
materials.
The
re-issue
of
this
work
has
enabled
the
author
torevise
generally
and
also
to
add
additional
matter
and
illustrations
in
the
more
important
sections.
The
subject
of
Architecture
has
received
considerable
amplification,
as
additional
illustrations
are
given
of
the
Greek,
Romanesque,
and
Gothic
styles,
together
with
the
Italian,
French,
and
English
Renas-
cence,
making
this
branch
of
the
work
more
comprehensive
and
useful
to
the
general
reader.
The
section
dealingwith
the
applied
arts
has
also
been
enlarged,
additional
plates
of
Goldand
Silver,
Bronzes,
Furniture,
Woodcarvings,
and
Bookbindings
being
inserted,
togetherwith
a
number
ofthe
beau-
tiful
initial
letters
of
the
early
printed
books
of
the
latter
part
of
the
1
5th
and
the
early
i6th
centuries,
illustrating
the
vitality,
inventiveness,
and
skill
ofthe
craftsmen
ofthe
past.

REFACE.
This
manual
has
been
prepared
with
the
three-fold
object
ofgiving
an
elementary
knowledge
ofArchi-
tecture
and
Historic
Ornament,
of
awakening
a
responsive
and
sympathetic
feeling
for
the
many
beautiful
and
interesting
remains
of
ancient
and
mediaeval
civilization,
and
lastly,
of
directing
the
attention
of
students
and
craftsmen
to
thebeauty,
suggestiveness,
and
vitality
ofthe
Industrial
arts
of
the
past,
and
their
intimate
relation
to
the
social
and
religious
life
of
the
people.
The
advantages
to
be
derived
by
students
and
craftsmen
from
such
a
study
are
manifold,
for,
by
a
careful
study
of
these
arts
we
may
see
the
capabilities
and
limitations
of
material,
the
appropriateness
and
application
of
ornament,
thecontinuity
of
line
and
form
yetwith
a
marked
diversity
of
enrichment
and
treatment
the
interest
and
significance
of
detail,
and
the
customs,
myths,
and
traditions
of
the
past,
with
their
continuity
of
thought
and
expression.
The
illustrations,
whichhave
been
chosen
expressly
for
this
work,
are
typical
examples
of
each
period
or
style
and
are
produced
in
line
as
being
the
method
bestsuitedto
the
requirements
of
students,
giving
definition,
emphasis,
and
constructive
qualities
of
design
rather
than
pictorial
effect.
In
the
appendix
will
befound
a
list
of
text-books
and
works
of
reference,
which
may
be
studied
withconsiderable
advantage
by
students
desiring
further
information
upon
this
important
subject.
