Tarrant Monkton: The Workshop Press, [1974?]. Tall 8vo. First edition, later issue. The price is given as '30p' on the back cover and on page 49 the text states, 'In 1973 Ely Cathedral celebrated the thirteen hundredth anniversary of its founding by St. Etheldreda.' Original stapled paper covers. Illustrated throughout in colour from hand-drawn lithographic plates. Just a hint of foxing to the back cover. Near fine. Item #4910
Commissioned to coincide with the anniversary of the cathedral's founding in 673, and following the format of the author/artist's History at Salisbury Cathedral (1967), this is another fine example of her work and how to produce an informative guide that inspires the reader to look closely at the building it describes and depicts.
