Book Description
These, pages minke no pretence to give an exhaustive account of their subject, but only to supply sufficient data to ground an intelligent appreciation of such remains of stained and painted glass older than 1700 as are still to be found in ancient buildings.

In the introductory chapter I have shortly de- scribed the matter with which we have to deal- in particular, its fragmentary condition and the historical causes which have produced that condition. Also, I touch upon the subject of the connection between glass-painting and the other arts ancillary to architecture with special reference to their common objects and use.

The styles, which may be taken, roughly, to synchronize with those into which English archi- tecture from the 11th century onwards is usually divided, are then briefly described, and I have, in the concluding chapter, ventured to say a few words upon latter-day treatment of old glass, and to make some suggestions which may, I hope, be found helpful towards, not only the preservation, but also a reason- able use, of what is left Several of the illustrations are taken from the county of Essex, which is generally supposed to be below the average in remains of old painted glass, and I may all that it would not be difficult to illustrated all the styles in painted glass by fine specimens from Essex alone. This fact affords reasonable justification for the inference that there is, in every county in England, an open book about old painted glass which only needs a little editing i.e. copying and arranging the copies in some fairly accessible place-to make it of the greatest possible value to students and craftsmen, and to the public at large.
