A.W.N.Pugin and the Revival of Memorial Brasses

£19.99

Product description

Paperback first edition published in 1991. Inscribed on free endpaper. Stamped "Damaged Copy" on free endpaper, but appears to be in tact throughout. Clean and tightly bound.

Memorial brasses are a celebrated feature of many English churches and can be found throughout central and north-western Europe. After the productive period of the Middle Ages the craft declined but there was a spectacular revival in the 19th century to which Pugin made a very important contribution. This book gives insight into Pugin's talent as a designer in the decorative arts and sets his work on brasses into the context of the religious revival and the improving fortunes of the Roman Catholic Church in the first half of the 19th century. Meara describes Pugin's methods, his close collaboration with John Hardman, a brass manufacturer in Birmingham, and the industrial history of the Midlands over this period.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
