It is true that a few articles have appeared in various periodicals on the subject, but with scarcely an exception they treated only of Working on Wood, and the directions given were generally crude and imperfect. This is the more surprising when we consider how fashionable Repousse Work has become of late years, both here and in America- indeed, in the latter country, Do you pound brass? is said to be a very common question. I have written the following pages in the hope that they might, in some measure, supply a want, and prove of service to my brother amateurs.It has been hinted to me that some of my chapters are rather advanced- in other words, that I have gone farther than amateurs are likely to follow me.
