This small book of some 56 pages provides an outline of the history and general composition of English bell ringing. However, of those 56 pages, there are only 8 pages of text given to the methodology of the subject so this book is not a primer for those seeking to learn full-circle bell ringing.
Nevertheless, it is an inexpensive and charming introduction to "the arts and mysteries of the Exercise" of this ancient and fascinating but little-understood thread in the fabric of English life and which is so in need of support.
