About the book:

This series offers to the perceptive reader, clear, expert and detailed information on the history, architecture, monuments and other furnishings of Britain's great cathedrals. Succeeding the famous Bell's Cathedral Guide series which was published around the turn of the century, these completely new guides have been written by distinguished scholars and lavishly illustrated by specially commissioned photographs. In this volume Richard Gem discusses the early history of the site of Westminster; Christopher Eilson analyses the architecture of the Abbey Church; Henry VIII's Chapel and the Abbey Precincts; Pamela Tudor-Craig considers the medieval sculpture, paintings and other works of arty; and John Physick surveys the post-Reformation monuments of their sculpture. All four authors have collaborated closely with Malcolm Crowthers, whose magnificent photographs illuminate their discussions.
