Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

The dust jacket is quite worn - fading / tears / ripping. Sticker on front flap.

Some slight discolorations to the cover itself. Some scuffing to the endpapers. The pages have discolored a bit with age... mostly the endpapers.


This book is designed to help all who would like to be able to sketch--those confined to the home as well as those who are prepared to travel. The author roams through city, town, village and hamlet, into houses and homes, old and new, advising what to sketch and how to sketch it. Materials, method and techniques are clearly and simply described and examined.

Some very small markings on the title page. Name written above the table of contents.
