Amateurs and Students have now been presented
with an exposition of what they have to aim to
attain; the principles by which the desideratum
may be effected : and a facile method of working
out those principles: the remainder must be
supplied by themselves ; courage to attempt, and
good spirits to resist despondence, if at the outset
they may not be quite so successful as they had
anticipated. The delights resulting from the
achievement will amply repay a few disappoint-

Colour has been treated in a separate work ;
both on account of its requiring more proficiency
in the amateur, and on account of the extent of
illustration necessary to do justice to the subject.
