Specification

Metal Engraving was traditionally done by hand using a steel-tipped cutting tool called a burin (from the French word meaning "cold chisel"). Today, metal engraving is still done by hand or by using newer techniques like laser engraving.

Originally published in the 1910s, this classic book on Engraving Metals by Hand is not only thoroughly practical and reliable, but is so simply worded that even inexperienced readers can understand it. You will learn about engraving terms, engraver's tools and their uses, elementary exercises in engraving, engraving plate and precious metals, engraving monograms, engraving steel for transfer processes, engraving name-plates, engraving coffin-plates, chasing metals and etching metals. The book is well illustrated with 117 engravings and diagrams.
