What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

As a concise history, this work examines the developments of the 'ideas and ideals' of the Church of England from the Roman conquest of Britain to the beginning of the twentieth century. Collated, complete with sixteen colour plates, and eight black and white plates. The illustrations in this work were taken from scenes in the 1909 Church Pageant held at Fulham Palace, and strive to 'render the presentation of the Church's story as accurate as possible in every detail of vestment and ceremonial'- Author's preface.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding with gilt stamped title and design to front board and spine. Externally very smart with slight bumping to extremities and head and tail of spine. Fading to spine, as expected with this colour binding. The odd mark to boards. Prior owners' ink inscription to front pastedown. Scattered spots to endpapers. Internally firmly bound. Pages slightly age toned to extremities but bright and clean, with the odd scattered spot to the occasional page. The occasional pencil inscription to the odd page.

Very Good Indeed
