Originally Published between 1828 and 1855
In the nineteenth century students who did not have access to plaster casts and teachers who wished for a course of instruction turned to copy books for drawing lessons. They were popular and many authors produced versions either for use in schools or for learning at home.
This book combines examples from seven different books.
The selections focus on those sections of the books devoted to drawing the human figure.
The books include:
Buchanan's Initiatory Drawing Lessons
The Illustrated Drawing Book
The Young Artists Assistant in the Art of Drawing
A Guide to Figure Drawing
Oxford Drawing Book
Drawing Lessons for Family and School
Systematische Zeichen Schüle
