Excerpt from Art Work in Gold and Silver, Modern
Each Handbook will contain an historical record of the progress of the art of which it treats, from the earliest times to the present, showing the distinctive characteristics of the respective periods; and will be illustrated w... ith about forty to sixty engravings, which will include representations of many of the most remarkable specimens of industrial art that have been preserved to us, and which now adorn the national museums of Europe.
In making the selection, much care has been taken to include only those works that are noteworthy either for the elegance of their form or the beauty of their ornamentation: although a few objects have been chosen for their historical interest, and for the purpose of showing the style of art prevalent at the time in which they were made.
