Art. XX. The History and Antiquities of Salisbury Cathe
dral, illustrat-d with a Series of Engravings of Views, Ele outions, Plans, und De'ails of tht Edifice, Etchings of ancient Sculpture, &c. &c. By John Brition, F.S.A. 4to.
106 pp. 31 Engravings. 31. 3s. Longman and Co. 1814. WE scarcely know an author to whom the public is more indebted tor laborious and varied works in ancient architecture, than to Mr. Brilion. He has gone over much ground in his researches, he has brought many hidden beauties to light, and has given an additional charm 10 those which were already known. His pl les are always good, and his desians correct; and when we remember the number and the varie y of his pube lications, and the reasonable rate at which the public by his Jabours, may po»st-ss themselves of the tinest specimens ot antiquiry, we shall not withhold from him the credit which is justly his due.
Salisbury is a Cathedral of such singular and such varied beauty, that many volumes may be published, and many
hun. dred views may be taken, before we shalı have seen it in all its perfect points of view, Mr. Britton has, by this work, added much 10 our store of architectural engravings, nor can we pass a higher compliment upon it, than by sa ing that the plates are truly worthy of the edifice which they embody. The pomis of view are happily selected, and the engravings skilfully executed, and cannot fail to afford high gratification to all the admirers of this elegant and magnificent pile.
Of Mr. Dodsworth's work we have already spoken in terms of deserved praise. Between that and the volume before us, we shall institute no comparisons. They are both highly desirable possessions to the lover of Gothic architecture, and enough still remains in Sal:sbury for any one who should be hardy enough to attempt even a third publication of its beauties.
