A large folio with superb tinted lithographic plates; the designs run the gamut of eclecticism (rustic primitive Gothic; early English; Byzantine; Anglo Italian with turret; Romanesque, etc.) The cheaper designs are for wooden buildings of vertical siding with batten boards; the more expensive ones for stone. The liturgical requirements are covered in detail. There is an advertisement sheet at the front of this book which would infer that publication took place after June 1869.
