Notes
Content : Title from folder.

Content : Written on border: "1868" "Oceania" Printed on border: "Ornament of savage tribes." "The ornaments in the woodcuts below and at the side show a far higher advance in the distribution of curved lines, the twisted rope forming the type as it naturally would be of all curved lines in ornament. The uniting of two strands for additional strength would early accustom the eye to the spiral line, and we always find this form side by side with geometrical patterns formed by the interlacing of equal lines in the ornament of every savage tribe, and retained in the more advanced art of every civilised nation." Includes additional text.

Source note: The grammar of ornament : illustrated by examples from various styles of ornament, one hundred and twelve plates. Bernard Quaritch, 1910) Jones, Owen (1809-1874), Author.
