On Divers Arts (Dover Art Instruction), Theophilus
10 Theophilus On Divers Arts (Dover Art Instruction)

Black-and-white illustrations in the text. List of plates, list of figures, bibliography, index. "Theophilus teaches, with rigorous attention to fact but also with great reverence, the making of pigments for fresco painting, the manufacture of glue, the technique of gold leaf on parchment, how to blow glass and design stained glass windows, fashion gold and silver challices, make a pipe organ and church bells. Precise instruction on enamelling, chasing, repousse, niello, and beaded wire work prove Theophilus' first-hand knowledge of his craft. While 90% of Theophilus is sound technical knowledge, medieval folklore occasionally spices his text: 'Tools are also made harder by hardening them in the urine of a small red-headed boy than by doing so in plain water.'"
