One unlucky day I was in a print-shop in Holborn, when I saw upon the counter some extremely beautiful drawings in silver-point.
It is now in the Berlin Museum, and contains eighty-five drawings in silver-point, finished with pen and ink.
Lead point.One of these was the silver-point or lead-point, very much like the metallic pencil of a modern pocket-book.
He drew with silver-point and charcoal upon parchment and prepared cedar.
Similar to lead pencil, and of even greater delicacy, is silver-point drawing.
The discipline of silver-point drawing is to be recommended as a corrective to the picturesque vagaries of charcoal work.
