E.R. Morse of the Vermont Marble Company and in the belief that there is need for a simple and practical presentation on the subject. It is mainly for the memorial craftsman and his salesmen that this work is produced and it is the writer’s desire to make some contribution…to a better knowledge of memorial ornamentation in the retail selling field. Correct ornament invariably has an historic derivation which can be traced and which gains meaning if its origin and the structural or artistic reasons for its use are understood.”)
