"Robert Dossie was a rigorous advocate for the advantages of improved public knowledge. His training as an apothecary brought experience with chemistry to his understanding of the use of sciences to achieve this goal in artisan endeavors." according to Sarah Lowengard. His most famous work, The Handmaid for the Arts, was first published in the same year as this work, and "instructs the reader in multiple techniques of painting and engraving, papermaking, and japanning. As a resource, it was well regarded by eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century artisans and it continues to be a standard reference for practical techniques of that era."
