PREFACE.


THE Usefulness of Books calculated for the Improvement of young People
in the Arts of _Writing_ and _Drawing_, are too evident to need being
insisted upon.--We shall therefore only beg leave in a very concise
Manner to point out the particular Merits of the Work we here offer the
Public.

FIRST, then, it is humbly proposed as an Assistant to School-Masters;
for as the greatest Part of these our Moral Copies were first wrote by
that able and experienced Penman, Mr. _William Chinnery_ Senior, and
engraved from thence by an Artist very eminent in his Way; they will
save such Masters the Trouble as well as Time of writing a Variety of
Copies for their young Pupils with their own Hands.

AGAIN, this little Book will undoubtedly be found of infinite Advantage
to such Persons, as either cannot write at all, or but very
indifferently, and have no Opportunity of being instructed by any able
Master; for here they will find not only all the Characters made use of
in Printing; but those, likewise, in all the Hands that are most useful,
and most practised throughout _Great-Britain_ in the Way of Trade and
Business.

AND, that No One, who may be desirous of Improvement in the two
important Branches above mentioned, may want that Aid or Assistance,
which this Attempt is so well calculated to afford them, the Editor has
set so low a Price upon it, that it will fall within the Compass of
almost every one's Purchase:--And it must be acknowledged, by all who
are Judges of the Expense of such a Number of Plates, and those,
likewise, so well executed, that it is the very cheapest Book of the
Kind that has ever hitherto been published.

AS to our Ornamental, Emblematic Devices, which we have ventured to call
our DRAWING-BOOK, and we hope with some Degree of Propriety, it has One
Thing, if Nothing more, to recommend it; namely, that Not One Single
Design ever appeared in public before; and we apprehend, that the Whole
is exhibited in an accurate and workmanlike Manner:--Such, therefore, as
it is, it is freely submitted to the Censure or Approbation of the
Public, by

_Their Most Obedient Servant_,
