Excerpt from A Primer of Architectural Drawing for Young Students, Being a Progressive Series or Drawing Bonn Problems, Thb, Embodiment or the Teachings in the Mechanics Institute or New You City In the creating of this little book, thousands of hours of thinking and planning, observing and experimenting have been spent. The work, if such it may be called, has been almost wholly a delightful one, and has been in itself an inestimable reward to the writer. For the idea of writing the book, as well as for inspiration and encouragement during its progress, the author is indebted to Mr. Louis Rouillion, principal of the Mechanic's Institute of New York City. He is indebted also largely to the opportunity afforded him, by his connection during five years with this school, of putting his ideas into actual practice and of testing his theories from day to day. He is indebted to Richey, Browne and Donald Iron Works for the working details of one of his large plates. To the hundreds of students whom the author has met in the past, as well as to those whom he may t meet, he trusts that this book may be a means to guide them safely through the earlier and more fundamental problems in architectural drawing, and thus prepare a strong, and at the same time, inspiring foundation for the more advanced problems in architectural planning and design.
