As nearly as possible, he gives the age and provenance of each and calls attention to the indications of age and authenticity. For the collector, this 'tour' will bring the pleasure of recognition and comparison, and for the amateur, a welcome chance to get his eye in, as it were, and to enjoy more fully - and more successfully - the search for genuine old pieces."
