Plate 2 - Ellipses (circa 1865)
These delightful illustrations are lithographs published in the late 1860s. Intended to be used in primary schools, the book featured modes of drawing that slowly built on each other to demonstrate for readers. One contemporary publication went so far as to describe the images "...as elegant and and the books are otherwise a credit to the publishers." Overall the prints are in exceptional condition for their age, though some minor foxing is present, as show in the scan below.
