Excerpt from The Laws of Fésole: A Familiar Treatise on the Elementary Principles and Practice of Drawing and Painting

The publication of this book has been delayed by What seemed to me vexatious accident, or (on my own part) unaccountable slowness in work: but the delay thus enforced has enabled me to bring the whole into a form which I do not think there will be any reason after wards to modify in any important particular, containing a system of instruction in art generally applicable in the education Of gentlemen; and securely elementary in that of professional artists. It has been made as simple as I can in expression, and is specially addressed, in the main teaching of it, to young people (extending the range of that term to include students in our universities); and it will be SO addressed to them, that if they have not the advantage of being near a master, they may teach them selves, by careful reading, what is essential to their progress. But I have added always to such initial princi ples, those which it is desirable to state for the guidance of advanced scholars, or the explanation of the practice Of exemplary masters.
