"Realizing a demand for an inexpensive text-book on a subject of hand-wrought ornamental ironwork, this volume is offered to instructors in manual training, students, professional workers, and others interested in this fascinating handicraft.

While it deals largely with interior ironwork, it shows also the constructive principles of ornamental hand-forging and point out the guiding principles and methods underlie all forger work. 

That the armature may more readily understand the principles involved, a number of designs and drawings, made by author while teaching decorative ironwork, with instructions for working them out, have been incorporated in the text."
