Excerpt from Familiar Sketches of Sculpture and Sculptors, Vol. 1
After writing the above Preface, and when my book was nearly completed, a volume was put into my hands, which, had I met with it before, would have supplied my want. This Work, entitled Sculpture and the Plastic Art, is an excellent compendium of works preced ing it. The author, however, though begin ning with the same general plan as mine, has followed it out in so different a manner, that I have still thought a publication of my own book might not be useless.
The subject Of Sculpture among us Ameri cans has been but little studied except by the initiated. Painting has her thousand votaries, and is illustrated and described by a hundred authors, while Sculpture stands ooff in moon lit solitudes, and, like the Egyptian Isis, veils her features from the crowd.
