From the Preface: “I have endeavoured to furnish, in broad outlines, a conspectus of the development of original engraving and etching from its beginnings to the present, a general survey of relationships, so that not only the lover of prints and the budding collector, but also the art student, may gain a more lively impression of the subject…the device of the illustrations and the selection of the artists has been based on the consideration that originality of invention in the use of line and its bearing on subject-matter or, vice versa…is more important than the individual artist as such.”
