Being Volumes I and II of what was eventually an eight volume set. The work was published over eighteen years, and therefore it is uncommon to see volumes together.

Adorned with illustrations of Cathedral plans, decor and elevations.  This work explores the architecture and history of these beautiful cathedral buildings. 

Bound by Edmonds and Remnants, with the label to the rear pastedown.
