English Cathedral and Monastic Carpentry

English Cathedral and Monastic Carpentry 

By: Cecil A. Hewett, 1985

Well over a hundred great churches were built in the cathedral tradition in the middle ages.  They are our most important group of historical monuments and embody the finest craftwork of medieval architecture.  Cecil Hewett’s massive contribution to architectural history is now generally acknowledged and in this new and definitive study of the carpentry of England’s great churches, illustrated by some three hundred of his own magnificent drawings, he provides both a work of reference and a stimulating analysis of the evolution of the craft.
