Full Description

Large folio. Colour frontispiece, xxxvi + 140pp, 153 photo plates (some colour). Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper (the wrapper slightly torn). No ownership inscription, but Sir Howard Colvin’s copy, with two related offprints of articles by Hilary Wayment loosely inclosed.

A mighty volume providing authoritative descriptions, illustrations and scholarly commentary on the splendid early sixteenth century stained glass windows of King’s College, Cambridge, benefiting from an exceptional opportunity to study them at close quarters during the cleaning of the interior of the chapel in 1967-9.
