Specification

Originally published in the 1890s, Elementary Metal Work contains an explanation of the processes of cold metal work, chiefly as applied to decorative or industrial art.

This book is a practical manual for amateurs and for use in schools. It is not intended "for amateurs to pass an idle hour," but to train the young to use their brains and hands, to develop ideas of design and its application.
