The rise of the Gothic. Photography by Clive Hicks.
London, Hutchinson 1985.
Folio. 208pp, 157 photo ills (some colour). Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper. Jill Allibone’s copy, with a draft typescript review of the book by her loosely enclosed.
To quote Jill Allibone’s draft review, “this pretentious, over-written and … at times quite dotty book has been put together by a poet whose readings in the wilder regions of iconographical conjecture have clearly proved too much for him”, but the photos of Gothic buildings are pleasing enough.
