Notes on the Churches of Kent

£6.99

Product description

This volume on the architecture of Kent Churches is one of a series covering the whole of England and Wales. It was published in 1877 after the death of its author, the noted church historian, Sir Stephen Glynne, who spent his life studying ecclesiastical architecture. His notes are greatly respected by architectural historians, as they frequently provide a brief but informed record of the buildings as they were before Victorian restorations and re-orderings. Glynne often revisited the churches on two or three occasions at several years remove, and so the notes also provide a record of changes over time. Lawrence Butler considers that "in some ways he was the precursor of the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments in terms of ordering his descriptions". The book includes many illustrations. The hardback is in poor condition with stained and worn boards and spine, loosening binding, and pages with are yellowed and spotted with age.
