This is the first book on the history of the virtually unknown phenomenon of the importation of Continental church furniture into England since the early 19th century, fuelled by the Romantic mediaevalising enthusiasm of Pugin and the Catholic Revival, as well as the eccentric whims of the Anglican Squiresons. It is well illustrated throughout, with over 100 pieces, from pulpits to choir stalls, discussed in detail. There is also an invaluable gazeteer of the main English churches containing fragments of this material.
