"A book dealing with a special method of using varnishes in order to render transparent the paper employed for coloured prints on glass. This curious fashion of transparencies or glass paintings arose at the end of the seventeenth century, and was much in vogue for windows, screens, and the like. They were produced by laying specially tinted impressions on glass and rubbing away the paper behind, leaving just enough film to enable the colouring to be put on by hand."—Prideaux. The varnished images include two Chinese men with lanterns, the head of a cat, the British Imperial crown, a philosopher in his windowed study, and a fireplace. Provenance: "A.S. Gratton, Chesterfield", early ownership inscription on front free endpaper; J.A. Beedham, twentieth century inscription on front pastedown. Abbey, Life 230; Prideaux pp. 284 & 346.
