(Introduction) 'Although there are many books on Lettering extant, there are none which are published at a very moderate price, and at the same time fill modern requirements. During an experience of twenty five years in lettering, the author has repeatedly observed the great want among designers, of a collection of alphabets giving the correct shapes of the various styles at a glance.

The present series of books has been specially designed to meet this want, and great care has been taken to give the various standard styles most accurately, together with such novelties as have of late years been evolved through artistic designing. As there have been many requests for hints as to shadings and shadows, special coloured plates have been prepared in order to make the series a most complete treatment of the subject, while the price has been kept very low, in order to be within the reach of the youngest apprentice and student.

While the books will prove to be useful ready references for the qualified workman, explanatory notes have been added to assist the beginner to fully understand the peculiar characteristics and distinctive styles of the various letters.'
