Excerpt from Painters, Sculptors, Architects, Engravers, and Their Works: A Handbook When I regard a favorite shelf in my library, and consider how exhaustively the subjects of this volume have been treated, I feel inclined to hide it away; but when I think how many there are in our land who are as much interested in art and artists as I am, and have not the means to furnish such a shelf, I hope that this book may do something for them. I have also endeavored to make it a book of reference which can be easily consulted and used to advantage in connection with more exten sive works. Much time and study have been given to its prep aration, and I have aimed to be conscientiously correct as well as unprejudiced in my decisions between conflicting authorities. The books consulted are too numerous to be named except in part, which will be done at the end of this preface. The book is not necessarily connected with my work on Legendary and Mythological Art, but the two are so related to each other as to be profitably used together. The arrangement of engraving lists is, so far as I know, unique, and will render it a useful handbook for connoisseurs and buyers. The illustrations are representations of standard works of art, most of which are seen in European galleries and churches. A good number of monograms of painters and engravers are also given. I have endeavored in a small ispace to speak not only of artists as such, but by various facts and anecdotes to convey an idea of what they were in character and life. Three comprehensive indexes are added, which will increase the convenience and usefulness of the book, and in short, in its entire plan I have adopted the motto of Jan van Eyck, Als ich chan.
