A Manual of Wood Carving, by Charles G. Leland, revised by John J. Holtzapffel, 1891, was a highly regarded and widely popular self-educational wood carving text of the 19th century Arts & Crafts movement.

A Manual Of Wood Carving features a chapter on the Sweep Cut, a technique popular with relief carvers.

Embracing the naturalistic themes of William Morris and others, Leland introduced to the public wood carving as an expressive art form for use on both purely decorative as well as functional forms, such as furniture, tankards and platters.
