"In and earlier volume I dealt with intaglio prints and engraving and etching on metal. The present work is devoted to the history of relief-prints, i.e. woodcut and wood-engraving, and analogous work on metal...I shall often use the term 'woodcut', as on my title-page, as the simplest designation of the whole class of relief-prints, where specific reference to particular prints is not implied." -- from Chapter I: Processes and Materials. Bibliographical references at the end of each chapter and in the footnotes. Includes an index and a list of illustrations.
