Sample text

The wood-cutter could engrave as badly, that is, there have OF THE HISTORY OF WOOD-ENGRAVING. 19 been engravers as unskilful, in later days as in the earlier. And even weakness and brokenness of lines may sometimes only mean that the wood-cut has been much worn or unfortunately battered out of its pristine soundness. In truth, until the close of the fifteenth century, the time of Albert Diirer, we can find but few cuts, in the vast multitude done, which show anything more than such mechanical dexterity as we might expect from any carver's or joiner's apprentice after two or three or half-a-dozen trials.

Then, partly to get rid of the yellow colour of the wood and the differences of grain, but chiefly because a pencil can scarcely make a mark upon the polished surface, a " ground " is laid upon it. A little dust from a "Bath brick," a kind of soft brick, used for cleaning knives, which crumbles easily, and is not gritty, may be rubbed over it. This gives a certain very slight roughness, so that a pencil can freely work on the wood. One objection to this ground is that it is likely to be too rough, and so prevent a sharp thin line, most desirable in a drawing in lines only.

It is only a greater regularity that is to be obtained by use of the tint-tool. I have been in th§ habit of using the graver instead of the tint-tool whenever I cared more for freedom than uniformity of line. A very slightly rounded tool, 7, 8, allowing' of some limited variety of line, yet not tending to so much divergence as the graver, was always a favourite tool with me for soft and delicate and nicely graded shades. Of course it may be had of any degree of strength or fineness, according to the line to be cut.
