First published in 1940, this was the first comprehensive book about British alabaster tombs. Originating from an article by the same writer in the Archaeological Journal for 1923, it provides a detailed account of the surviving alabaster monuments, from the earliest examples of around 1330 through to those created at the time of the Reformation. The text contains 305 photographic images of alabaster tombs taken from around the country, together with a list of effigies explaining their relative origins and significance. This is a highly rigorous study that will be of value to anyone with an interest in religious art and British history.
