Continental Church Furniture in England: A Traffic in Pietyby Charles Tracy
Synopses & Reviews
This is the first book on the history of the virtually unknown phenomenon of the importation of Continental church furniture into England since the early 19th century, fuelled by the Romantic mediaevalising enthusiasm of Pugin and the Catholic Revival, as well as the eccentric whims of the Anglican Squiresons. It is well illustrated throughout, with over 100 pieces, from pulpits to choir stalls, discussed in detail. There is also an invaluable gazeteer of the main English churches containing fragments of this material.
The first book to be published on the subject with over 350 superb black and white illustrations and 20 colour photographs. It is the result of over ten years' reserach, written by a leading authority on church furniture. It will be of interest to furniture and art historians, museums, libraries, Puginians and students of the English
