Ernest Stephen Lumsden, (born London, 22 December 1883, died Edinburgh, 29 September 1948) was a distinguished painter, noted etcher and authority on etching. He studied at Reading Art School from 1889 under Frank Morley Fletcher and briefly at the Académie Julian in Paris in 1903.

Perhaps the title should have been "The Art and Artists ..." No matter, it's a good one anyway.

First published in the 1920s, this gives a lively, opinionated view of the etching process and art. The first half of the book is about the technique, tools, and materials of the etcher. It's strong on recipes for grounds, and good about basic technique. It's a bit vague about the press and about pulling an impression, and doesn't cover the range of etching processes that other how-to books do, however. Drypoint is mentioned, and Lumsden gives an uncommonly good description of how a drypoint mark is properly made - or improperly.

The next section of the book is a whirlwind tour of the history of etching, from the late 15th century up to Lumsden's present day (ca. 1925). A few artists get special attention, notably Rembrandt, Durer, and his beloved Whistler. I fault this only for the indifferent quality of the reproductions - here, as in the how-to section, the images are too blurred for the real character of each print to stand out. The last 60 pages or so include one- and two-page notes by Lumsden's contemporaries. These are especially interesting for their details of materials, etchants, and etching schedules. I know of no other source that goes into such detail about the etching time need for marks with up to about a dozen different intensities.

The historical notes are good, but the how-to section is decidedly dated. The first person tone of the book is unique, though, as are some of the historical and practical notes. This isn't the first book for a print-lover or -maker, but certainly has a place in any collection on prints and printmaking.

Amazing text. Still incredibly relevant today. The only downside is that a lot of the chemicals are dated but the processes largely remain the same. Lumsden did a really nice job of remaining subjective and explaining each process for what it is.
  • Quendant
This book is a comprehensive expose of the process and execution of etchings, providing detailed instructions, hints and materials at every stage and variety of etching. There are illustrations of materials needed and of the finished print. A useful resource.
  • Nicearad
This book's font (print size) was so small it's very difficult to read. The illustrations were poor. The information is outdated, and this book should only be purchased by someone with excellent vision who wants a historical view of outdated ethching methodology.

This was the foundational reference I used in college in 1962 and it remains as a classical "must" for any artist's reference library.
