These vintage book pages cover information on the subject of wording and punctuation of inscriptions for engraving. The article includes an image of a man seated at a table, doing some engraving work. Also included are examples of beautiful engravings appropriate for marking rings, spoons, pins, watches, etc.
Here are three black and white clip art images I’ve created from the first page.
Ornamental Frame #1.
Ornamental Frame #2.
These pages are from Hill’s Manual of Social and Business Forms, by Thos. E. Hill, 1886.
