This book discusses a heterogeneous collection of buildings, some extant, some not: lost cathedrals of the Middle Ages and earlier, churches and abbeys that have been cathedrals but are no longer, newer Anglican cathedrals, and cathedrals of other denominations (mostly Roman Catholic). It then rather peters out into descriptions of some Anglican churches that have the nickname 'cathedral', and of some other churches that could be or could have been cathedrals judged mainly on the criterion of size.

The book has been thoroughly researched and has much interesting historical detail. Some of the descriptions of the buildings are, I am afraid, a bit dull, and inclined to phrases like "there are many interesting fittings". The book is well-produced and quite well illustrated. I don't begrudge it a place on my bookshelf.

This book was purchased as a gift and so I will quote from the recipient who said "the book was excellent in every way" he also said he had no complaints at all, and would recommend the book to" anyone with an interest in historic buildings".

For someone like me who loves visiting cathedrals this is must. It covers the less well known sites with surprising detail and is well written and illustrated. Reallg glad I purchased it
