There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There seems to be an over-emphasis here on Windsor, remarkable though it is, and I spotted one or two mistakes and omissions within a few minutes of opening it. Reading's Maiwand Lion isn't in Forbury Square, for instance, and the handy glossary at the end explains what a vault is but not a vestry. Presumably someone who's studied architecture or local history would spot even more.
It's also sad that this has had to be funded by Yale University Press rather than an English institution but overall Pevsner is, as ever, a national literary treasure.
