Notes
Content: Printed on border: "Figure 1 is a key which the thief can not obtain, and for which he has to find a substitute. To accomplish this he provides himself with a coarsely made blank key of tin, one side of which is covered with a layer of wax. … From the map of the interior thus obtained a forged key (Fig. 3) is made of strong flattened wire. It will be seen that the copy is a much simpler instrument than the original, but it is equally effective. … The picklock, Figure 4, is of a different character ; it acts by working round outside the wards, reaching the bolt that way." Includes additional text.
