[Guide Book] Dodsworth, William; (Green, Rupert); et al: The Southampton Guide [...]; A Guide to the Cathedral Church at Salisbury [...]; The History and Antiquities of Glastonbury [...]; A Brief History of Worcester [...]: Southampton: T.

Contemporary half tan calf, black gilt title label to spine, grey marbled paper-covered boards, edges sprinkled brown.

To the front paste-down, armorial bookplate of Nathanael Ellison. To the ffep, two engravings of churches pasted in, both signed 'Matthews, Sculpt.'. Ownership inscription, 'Wynne, (Univ.?) College' to Worcester half-title. The second guide in this collection dates from an interesting time in the history of Salisbury Cathedral. Bishop Shute Barrington (17341826) employed the architect James Wyatt (17461813) to remodel the cathedral, resulting in its closure from 1789-92. Wyatt demolished the remains of the bell tower; drained and levelled the churchyard; removed the Perpendicular screen, two medieval chantry chapels and two porches; rearranged the medieval tombs and whitewashed or removed medieval wall paintings. Wyatt's remodelling was carried out in the name of creating a simpler interior, and the results were applauded by many of his contemporaries. However his disregard for the historical integrity of the Cathedral appalled the antiquary John Carter (17481817) and subsequent generations of historians. This guide offers a 'particular account of the great improvements made [...] under the direction of James Wyatt' and cites Wyatt's pre-works survey in Chapter III.
