green cloth covers with quarter leather spine edged by gilt line with gilt titles in gilt border & gilt publishers device; top edge gilt; deckled outer & bottom edges; a volume in the Gentleman's Magazine Library series being a classified collection of the chief contents of the Gentleman's Magazine in this case on Ecclesiology (the forms, building & decoration of churches); "The extracts are left to speak for themselves. A great number of them belong to a period when Ecclesiology was not specifically studied; but they preserve a record of facts which it may now be difficult to ascertain, because of the great changes which have nearly everywhere taken place in our churches under the specious name of restoration. On sifting the materials it was found that all the contributions to the Magazine dealing with matters Ecclesiological fell roughly under three heads, viz.; Early Church Building, Church Interiors, and Church History; and the whole of the extracts selected for reproduction are accordingly arranged under one or other of them. Under the first head will be found the very interesting discussion, or, more strictly speaking, controversy, as to whether the churches erected in England during the tenth century were as a general rule built of wood or:of stone."; including index - 327 pages plus 2 of publisher's adverts.
