The Cathedrals Of England: An Account of Some Of Their Distinguishing Characteristics; Together With Brief Historical And Biographical Sketches Of Their Most Noted Bishops

by M. J. Taber

Condition: Poor/None.

This antiquarian book is in poor condition. The cover has major wear on the front, back, spine, edges and corners. There are also stains on the cover boards. The previous owners mark is on the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned and the binding is loose but still intact. This book is 112 years old and is a perfect collectors item.

"In a book this size it is clearly impossible to give a full description of the architecture of the thirty cathedrals of England. The principal aim of this book is to throw something of a personal interest around the cathedrals, by giving glimpses of the bishops, rulers, and other noted personages who have been connected with them through the long series of years which have elapsed since their erection. At the same time, an attempt has been made to state briefly but comprehensively the salient and distinguishing characteristics of each edifice." - Author's Forward, The Cathedrals Of England
