A moment after, one of them cried out, "They run; see how they run!" "Who run?" demanded Wolfe. (c) In a working drawing, the top view is placed above the front view, the bottom view below the front view, the end view at the right of the front view. "From a pencil box, make a free-hand sketch of three views, the front, bottom and right end.

Page 24 - These triangles are used for ruling straight lines other than horizontal lines, for drawing parallel lines, for erecting a line perpendicular to any other line at any given point, and for drawing lines at certain angles to the horizontal.
Page 88 - ... represent the rays from the corners of the object to the eye. The straight lines joining the intersections of these rays with the vertical plane form the outline of the object. If this perspective picture is shaded and colored, it will exactly represent the object as seen from the viewpoint. The vertical plane on which the perspective drawing is made is called the picture plane, and the position of the eye is called the point of sight. The simplest construction of a perspective drawing is obtained...

The surface of the card is perpendicular to V and makes an angle of 30° with H. 35. Of same card when its diameter, besides making an angle of 30° with H, as in last example, has its horizontal projection inclined at an angle of 60° with GL, and slopes downward, backward, and to the left. 36.
