Draughtsman’s Work contains, in a form convenient for everyday
use, a comprehensive digest of information, contributed by
experienced draughtsman, scattered over the columns of Work and
Building World, two weekly journals it is my fortune to edit,
and supplies concise information on the general principles and
practice of the art on which it treats.
preparing for publication in book form the mass of relevant
matter contained in the volumes, much of it necessarily had to
be re-arranged and re-written.
contents of this book consist substantially of several series of
illustrated articles by Prof. Henry Adams, originally
contributed to Work and Building World.
The writings of many other contributors are so blended that it
is difficult to distinguish any for acknowledgment.
Readers who may desire additional information respecting special
details of the matters dealt with in this book, or instruction
on any building trade subjects, should address a question to
Work or Building World, So that it may be answered in the
columns of one of those journals.
