Sold from an institution with its bookplate, and neat cancellation stamp on front free endpaper and rear paste-down only. Having co-operated so sgnificantly with F.H. Crossley in 'English Church Woodwork' (1917) it is very greatly to be regretted that Howard published further before his death in 1934 at the early age of 45. His renown as an ecclesiastical architect had spread - E.A. Lamborn considered him the only authority whose knowledge of ecclesiastical art in the Middle Ages could be compared with that of the late Sir William Hope. Fortunately, Howard had brought the present work so close to completion that Lamborn was able to see it through to publication with very little alteration.
