Full Description

8vo. xx + 347 + (1)pp, 21 photo and other plates, text ills. Pub cloth. Author's presentation copy.

A curiously unsatisfactory book on Gloucester Cathedral by its then Dean, who was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and who had read Durandus and Viollet-le-Duc, but who in aiming his book at a general readership somehow does not do justice to his theme.
