PREFACE. in South Kensington, and from many objects in the possession of M. Digby Wyatt, Esq., Col. De La Rue, Thomas Chappell, Esq., F. 0. Ward, Esq., Messrs. Nixon and Rhodes, and others, the bulk of the compositions have been obtained. My thanks are especially due to Messrs. Durlacher and Mr. Wareham for the liberal loan of many objects, which I have been thus enabled to copy in the quiet of the studio. I venture to hope that the publication of these types of a style of Orna- ment hitherto little known will be found, by all those in the practice of Ornamental Art, a valuable and instructive aid in building up what we all seek,-the progressive development of the forms of the past, founded on the eternal principles which all good forms of Art display. OWEN JONES. 9 ARGYLL PLACE, Jul6y 15, 1867.
