Covering the entire golden age, from 1100 to 1530, it reveals in astonishing new detail over 100 windows and panels across the entire country. Nothing significant is omitted and the most important monuments, including the cathedrals of Canterbury,Wells, Gloucester, as well as York Minster, are covered in extra depth. For the interested visitor, the passionate devotee, or anyone simply enchanted by these fragile works of art, English Stained Glass will inform, enchant and delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterly study of English stained glass 28 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the only comprehensive study of English stained glass readily and economically available; it covers all periods and all parts of the country. The text is concise and readable, linked to superb illustrations. A `must' for anyone interested in church architecture.

I liked this book quite a bit. It was interesting to see the stained glasses throughout history. There were many large, well-done pictures in this book. I would recommend it to stained glass enthusiasts.
5.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have an English reference 20 Feb 2014
By CJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I see a great many books featuring French or general European historical stained glass. It was nice to find a book that focused on England and it's remaining glass heritage.
