Notes:
Title vignette.
The poresent volume is a supplement to, rather than a reprint of, the author's "Westminster abbey and the king's craftsmen," 1906. The special subject of this, as of the earlier study, is the form and details of the abbey church and other buildings as first wrought and the craftsmen who worked at them. The older volume remains a fuller study of the royal masons and other artists, while this is a completer account of the buildings. The illustrations are not repeated. Cf. Pref.
"Recent works on the abbey": p. v-vi.
Subject Terms:
Westminster Abbey.
