This volume analyses mechanical drawing based on its elements, or natural divisions, such as perspective sketching, orthographic sketching, pencil mechanical drawing, inking, tracing, and reproducing. It contains six chapters and was originally intended to cover the first two years of a mechanical drawing course in secondary schools. This book is highly recommended for students and would be of considerable utility to anyone with an interest in machanical drawing. Chapters include: "Orthographic Sketching", "Advanced Drawing-Sheet Metal Drawing Problems", "Advanced Drawing-Furniture and Cabinet Drawing Problems", "Advanced Drawing-Machine Drawing Problems","Advanced Drawing-Architectural Drawing problems", "Isometric and Cabinet Drawing", "Pencil Drawing", "Perspective Sketching", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on technical drawing and illustration.
