Item description for The Yorkshire Church Notes ofSir Stephen Glynne (1825-1874) (Yorkshire Archaeological Soc Record Series) (Yorkshire Archaeological Soc Record Series) by Lawrence Butler...
Sir Stephen Glynne (1807-1874) was one of the greatest church enthusiasts of his time, visiting over 5500 churches in England and Wales, and making careful notes and sketches of their architecture, plans and furnishings. His particular interest lay in the Gothic style, and in High Church principles, as his notes make clear. This volume contains architectural descriptions of 400 Yorkshire churches and abbeys compiled during his many visits. Interesting in their own right, they also provide an extremely accurate and valuable record of the fabric and fittings before their removal in restoration or the total demolition of churches. An introduction places Sir Stephen's life and work in the wider context of developing architectural and ritual scholarship. The text is accompanied by 250 contemporary water-colours and drawings, the majority from record sources and published for the first time. Together they provide a significant contribution to the study of Yorkshire church architecture at a time of rapid change.
