CN4 - A 2nd edition hardcover book SIGNED and inscribed by author to previous owner on page 1 in very good condition that has some bumped corners and dents, light discoloration and shelf wear with no dust jacket. Photographs by Mike Toy. HISTORIC CHURCHES OF BARBADOS, Second Edition, follows a much smaller first edition published by Art Heritage Publications, Barbados, in 1984. It evolved from notes of the architect Barbara Hill, intended for a grant application to study the church architecture of Barbados. This edition is greatly expanded by Professor Fraser, with more church history and a much more in-depth analysis of Barbadian church architecture. It emphasises the enormous impact of Bishop Coleridge, with his passion for Neo Gothic architecture, on the design of all our churches, from his arrival in 1825 until the 20th century. It is also much expanded, to include many more of the Methodist, Moravian and Roman Catholic churches, as well as the splendid Nidhe Israel Synagogue. An entirely new suite of splendid photographs have been provided by Mike Toy, eloquently illustrating the richness of our many historic "Pillars of Worship". 11.5"x10.5", 192 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
