Full Description

Tall 8vo. (40)pp, numerous ills. Publisher’s quarter cloth. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown endpaper. Roderick Gradidge’s copy.

Notable for its architect author’s striking conjectural restorations of the mediaeval abbey church at various key dates in its history. Hopefully its original builders never intended anything like the Norman west front or late Gothic west front imagined by Mr Henderson (FRIBA 1928).
