Give(s) in detail every process and method of the sculptor's craft with a fullness to be found in no other works. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
A student of the great Edouard Lanteri and a celebrated sculptor in his own right, Albert Toft created this manual to offer students every practical detail necessary for a complete knowledge of modeling and sculpture. Both professionals and amateurs will find Toft's experienced guidance a valuable help in surmounting difficulties and avoiding errors. Topics include:

Thirty-six plates and eighty-two line illustrations enhance this manual, and a helpful glossary defines the most common terms.
