Excerpt from The Stone Hammer and Its Various Uses
A comparison of stone implements, wherever found, reveals great similarity in them, not only in shape, but also in the method of their manufacture. Local peculiarities, it is true, are often to be observed, but as a rule they... are more often due to material than to shape or finish. If we except the Government publications on archaeology, and Evans' Ancient Stone Implements of Great Britain, works relating to this subject are, generally speaking, poorly illustrated; outlines are well executed, but the character of work on the implements does not appear to be considered of importance, and as a rule is inadequately shown. In referring to what has been written on the subject I have often been forced, in interpreting the text, to rely on Inferior delineations. Moreover, there is often a lack of sufficient information regarding the proportion of the figures to the implements illustrated.
