A HANDBOOK OF ART SMITHING.-For the use of
    Practical Smiths, Designers and others, and in Art and Tech-
    nical Schools.     By F. S. MEYER, Author of "A Handbook
    of Ornament." Translated from the Second German Edition.
    With an Introduction by J. STAR KIE GARDNER.                        Containing
    2 T4 Illustrations.    Demy 8vo, cloth, price 6s., net 5S.
      Both the Artistic and Practical Branches of the subject are dealt with,
    and the Illustrations give selected Examples of Ancient and Modern
    Ironwork. The Volume thus fills the long-existing want of a Manual
    on Ornamental Ironwork, and it is hoped will prove of value to all
    interested in the subject.
  "Charmingly produced.  . .          . It is really a most excellent
manual, crowded with
examples of ancient work, for the most part extremely well selected."-
The Studio.
  "Professor Meyer's work is a useful historical manual on art smithing,
based on a
scientific classification of the subject, that will be of service to all
smiths, designers, and
students of technical and art schools. The illustrations are well drawn and
numerous.
  "Mr. Batsford maintains in this manual the well earned reputation
of  Buiidit~e' News.
                                                                      his
firm of publish-
ing good, sound, and highly practicable books on the decorative arts and
handicrafts.
     . Replete with cuts of well-chosen specimens of the leading styles and
applications
of the craft. "-The A thenaum.
  "A VOLUME WHICH SHOULD BE IN ALL THE ART AND TECHNIcAL SCHOOLS IN
THE
KINGDOM, and which will be found highly instructive by those artistic amateurs
who may
feel inclined to become art workmen in iron."- The D~gtish Mechanic.

examples
have been very carefully selected, the most characteristic and beautiful
of
each period being illustrated; and a specially interesting selection of RenaIs-
sance work is given. Great care has been taken in printing the coloured
plates, which are more correct than those in Owen Jones' book.
