CHAP. II. Of the Instrument of Drawing.
 
I. The
Instruments of Drawing are sevenfold, viz. Charcoals, feathers of a Ducks-wing, black and red Lead pensils, pens made of Ravens quils, Rulers, Compasses, and Pastils. [...] III. The feathers ought to be of a Ducks-wing, (though others may serve well enough) with which you may wipe out any stroak of the Charcoal where it is drawn amiss, lest variety of Lines breed confusion.
