Malcolm C Salaman traces the art of copper plate engraving through the most interesting period of its history, from its introduction in the middle of the sixteenth century to its climax at the end of the eighteenth.

From the preface

There is a charm about old prints quite apart from their quality as engravings. They are links of intimacy with bygone times. The printed page may stir us with vivid passages of history, or quicken our imaginations with the social sidelight or the contemporary gossip of personal or fashionable import, but the prints of the period bring us at once eye to eye with the people themselves. In a word the prints revive for us the human atmosphere of a past age.
