The Catholic Apostolic Church Gordon Square London. Notes on the architectural features and furniture, with a glossary of technical terms … with fourteen photographic plates by W.Wedlake.
London, The Bedford Bookshop (1935).
4to. 48pp, 14 photo plates. Publisher’s printed wrappers, a little abraded at edges. Pages slightly curling at bottom outer corner. From the library of the Central Council for the care of Churches, with their bookplate and two neat ownership stamps on front endpapers (but the bookplate is crossed through in pencil, indicating that the book was de-accessioned). No inscription but Gavin Stamp’s copy, with a typed letter, signed, to him from Dr Clare Taylor, 20 June 2009, together with the text of a short typed note by her on the church, loosely inserted.
An unusually extensive description of the architecture and internal furnishings of the Catholic Apostolic Church, Gordon, Square, London, built to designs by the architect Raphael Brandon in 1853-5. Present-day architectural historians will find it irritating that the volume contains an unnecessary glossary of terms and does not identify the contractors and craftsmen employed by Brandon, but the accompanying photo illustrations are excellent for a publication of 1935.
