PREFACE.


The formality of a preface may seem scarcely necessary for the
supplementing of a system as simple and comprehensible as the one
herewith presented.

We have but to divide any surface we may wish to letter into squares (or
parallelograms as the case may be), in pencil lines; form the required
letters, in ink or paint, and according to the style chosen; erase the
pencil lines, and the lettering is complete.

J. H. C.

LETTERING FOR DRAFTSMEN

ENGINEERS AND STUDENTS.

_A Practical System of Freehand Lettering for Working Drawings_


BY

CHARLES W. REINHARDT,

_Chief Draftsman for "Engineering News."_


What this work actually intends to show is a "Practical System of
Freehand Lettering for Working Drawings"--one that by the method
outlined, is easily acquired and rapidly executed. The mode of procedure
given for every letter can easily be followed and always be remembered,
and by avoiding the common errors, as pointed out in parenthesis
alongside each correctly formed letter, the student will very soon be
able to form satisfactory letters for himself.--_Preface_.


TESTIMONIALS.

"It is the first book on Lettering I have ever seen that is good for
anything, practically speaking. I shall advocate its adoption in this
college at the earliest opportunity."--_Prof. Walter Flint, Maine State
College._

"It comes nearer to may ideal of a satisfactory treatment of this
subject than anything I have ever seen."--_Professor E H. Lockwood, Yale
University._

"My opinion of it is good, generally, and that it fills a long felt
want. It teaches what I have been trying to teach for some
time--commercial work."--_Prof. W.B. Hampson, University of Nebraska._

"It is just what my knowledge of the author's work on _Engineering News_
would lead me to expect--a practical system. I shall use the book
hereafter in my classes."--_Prof. Leonard S. Smith, University of
Wisconsin._

"This book is to the point, and supplies just what is wanted to the
profession. It is neat, concise, and a book that should be in the hands
of every student."--_Prof. C. W. Marx, Missouri State University._

"In my opinion it fills a long felt want of every practical draftsman,
besides finding an especial field of usefulness in school work."--_Prof.
Granberry Jackson, Vanderbilt University._

"I have examined his work and am surprised at the results of a trial. I
find that a beginner can make respectable letters with a copy of this
valuable book before him. I heartily recommend it for use in Technical
schools as being ahead of anything I have ever seen."--_Prof. R. D.
Hawkins, Tulane University._
