'This manual has been prepared with the three-fold object of giving an elementary knowledge of Architecture and Historic Ornament, of awakening a responsive and sympathetic feeling for the many beautiful and interesting remains of ancient and medieval civilisation, and directing the attention of students and craftsmen to the beauty, suggestiveness and vitality of the industrial arts of the past and their intimate relation to the social and religious life of the people.'
