Synopses & Reviews
From the Saxon simplicity of the little church of St Lawrence at Bradford-on-Avon to the late Victorian splendour of Holy Trinity, Sloane Street, London, Edwin Smith's photographs of parish churches epitomize English history and the English way of life.
Smith's (1912-1971) 214 photographs of parish churches are accompanied by a text setting the buildings in their social and historical context, and notes by Olive Cook, Smith's widow. First published in the US in 1979. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
