The abbey is a Royal Peculiar and briefly held the status of a cathedral from 1540 to 1550."--Wikipedia

The church of Sancta Sophia, Constantinople; a study of Byzantine building by W. R Lethaby( Book )

22 editions published between 1894 and 2005 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sancta Sophia is the most interesting building on the world's surface. Like Karnak in Egypt, or the Athenian Parthenon, it is one of the four great pinnacles of architecture, but unlike them this is no ruin, nor does it belong to a past world of constructive ideas although it precedes by seven hundred years the fourth culmination of the building art in Chartres, Amiens, or Bourges, and thus must ever stand as the Supreme monument of the Christian cycle. The attempt here is some disentanglement of the history of the Church and an analysis of its design and construction; on the one hand, we have been led a step or two into the labyrinth of Constantinopolian topography, on the other, we have thought that the great Church offers the best point of view for the observation of the Byzantine theory of building

I have for years been interested in the decipherment of the great palimpsest of London, and, in trying to realise for myself what the city was like a thousand years ago, writes the author in his introduction to this fascinating literary feat of archeological excavation and reconstruction, first published in 1902

Bookbinding, and the care of books; a text-book for bookbinders and librarians by Douglas Cockerell( Book )

4 editions published between 1963 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is hoped that this book will help bookbinders and librarians to select sound methods of binding books. It is intended to supplement and not to supplant workshop training for bookbinders. No one can become a skilled workman by reading text-books, but to a man who has acquired skill and practical experience, a text-book, giving perhaps different methods from those to which he has been accustomed, may be helpful. --Amazon.com
