From the Foreword: "Many of the books, as one would expect, are theological, but other subjects can be found. At Hatfield Broad Oak, for example, there are books on history, biography, medicine, philosophy and travel, and multilingual dictionaries. At Heathfield the collection includes books on classical scholarship, and works on agriculture, household management, carriers' timetables, heraldry and English literature....[Michael Perkin] has enlarged the scope of the original work significantly, and brought to fruition a study which will be the standard reference point on parochial libraries for many years to come." Illustrated. As new.
