Description

The present work is an exhaustive and fascinating study of Church Architecture, particularly English Churches-from the eleventh to the sixteenth century.

The book traces the history, growth and evolution of Churches and provides valuable insights into various architectural designs and construction details. It also serves as a guiding thread among the different styles and periods.

The book contains a considerable amount of new matter. Even when it deals with facts common to all treatises on medieval architecture, a great deal of freshness, originality and independence of treatment is achieved. The study of the man constructional subjects is throughout analytical. Also, the book is a good deal more than a volume on building construction as much space has been devoted in the introductory chapters to matters of human interest, before plunging into stones and mortar.

Divide into two volumes, the work is lavishly illustrated. Over 1400 illustrations (photographs and line-drawings) accompany the text. The set is thus an essential reference tool and would be of immense use of anyone interested in medieval architecture.
