Excerpt from Familiar Sketches of Sculpture and Sculptors, Vol. 1

The following book I was prompted to undertake on account of the difficulty experienced by myself, and probably others, in tracing a connected history of the great art here treated. I know of no American work exclusively on the subject. Sculpture comes in among the fine arts for those scraps of attention which are left after music and painting have been satisfactorily treated, a few dry chapters being generally appended for that purpose to many of the popular compendiums. I know not whether I have succeeded in rendering these sketches less dry, and more familiar, but it has been my object to make them attractive to the young.
