PERCY DEARMER

Vicar of St. Mary's, Primrose Hill

and later Professor of Ecclesiastical Art at King's College, London,

was THE authority above and beyond all others

just after the turn of the 20th century

who put the principles of the Oxford Movement

and the Catholic Liturgical Revial in the Church of England

into the printed word

augmented by the emerging art of photography

and gatd round him an extremely able group,

including Francis Eeles

(see our auction for his CORONATION OF ELIZABETH II)

who was largely responsible for the formation of the Council for the Care of Churches and its Diocesan Advisory Committees, and Jocelyn Perkins, Sacrist of Westminster Abbey.

Their "Warham Guild" was named after William Warham, the last pre-Reformation Archbishop of Canterbury,

(see our auction for The Warham Guild Handbook)

and their "Alcuin Club" for Charlemagne's renowned monk-liturgist who hailed from the other English Archepiscopal See of York,

and this booklet is one of the endless series of booklets prepared at Dearmer's hand or under his inspiration:
