Continental Church Furniture in England: A Traffic in Piety Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
