Overview

Excerpt from A Manual of Engineering Drawing for Students and Draftsmen

Different courses have been designed for different purposes, and criticism is not intended, but it would seem that better unity of method might result if there were a better recognition of the conception that drawing is a real language, to be studied and taught in the same way as any other language. With this conception it may be seen that except for the practice in the handling and use of instruments, and for showing certain stand ards of execution, copying drawings does little more in the study as an art of expression of thought than copying paragraphs from a German book would do in beginning the study of the German language.

And it would appear equally true that good pedagogy would not advise taking up composition in a new language before the simple structure of the sentence is understood and appreciated; that is, working drawings would not be considered until after the theory of projection has been explained.
