Excerpt from A Manual of Mending and Repairing: With Diagrams

The author of this work modestly trusts that all who read it with care will admit that in it he has dis tinctly shown that mending or repairing, which has hitherto been regarded as a mere adjunct to other arts, is really an art by itself, if not a science, since it is based on chemical and other principles, which admit of extensive application and general combina tion. It has its laws - a fact which has never been hinted at by any writer, since all recipes for restora tion in existence are each singly inventions made to suit certain cases. This work has been conceived on a different principle.
