Slight edge wear to jacket, price clipped, bottom edge of front cover bumped, otherwise near fine. Once the largest church in the world this is possibly still the most interesting English cathedral, not least for its turlough in the crypt. With decorative carvings ranging from the sublime (quire stalls) to the ridiculous (a memorial to the diver who repaired the foundations) the building has much to offer its visitors. Sadly this noncentenary account, by the canon residentiary, is somewhat pedestrian, unless you are easily enthralled by episcopal portraits. Appendices list the Bishops, Priors, Deans, Prebendaries and Canons, not forgetting the Cathedral Organists. Notes to each chapter, but no other bibliography. (16), 252 pp.
