Not signed as such, but this copy belonged to Charles John Klyberg who was a clergyman in Zambia and Battersea before becoming the Bishop of Fulham from 1985 to 1996.

An illustrated study of John Loughborough Pearson RA (1817—1897), a Gothic Revival architect renowned for his work on churches and cathedrals. Pearson revived and practised largely the art of vaulting, and acquired in it a proficiency unrivalled in his generation. He worked on at least 210 ecclesiastical buildings in England alone in a career spanning 54 years.


This copy is in very good condition. There is light wear to the wrapper's edges and a hint of fading to the spine. The book remains in strong readable condition.
