I was working on my reference homework and ran into this gem:
Art recreations: being a complete guide to pencil drawing, oil painting … moss work, papier mache … wax work, shell work … enamel painting, etc., with valuable receipts for preparing materials. Splendidly illustrated.
Those elipses? They’re because the title lists 30 crafts. The actual full title includes:
“pencil drawing, oil painting, water-color painting, crayon drawing and painting, painting on ground glass, grecian painting, antique painting, oriental painting, sign painting, theorem painting, moss work, papier mache, cone work, feather flowers, potichomanie, leather work, taxidermy, gilding and bronzing, plaster work, wax work, skull work, magic lantern, paper flowers, imitation of pearl, the aquarium, sealing-wax painting, panorama painting, coloring photographs, enamel painting, etc.”
54 libraries worldwide own this book, and one of them is mine! I’m so checking it out.
