A History of Giggleswick School by Bell

Containing Coloured Frontispiece

"The Dean imparts to his subject a freshness that strikes exactly the right note. Times without number the beauties of York have been pointed out, but never with more completeness than in 'Picturesque Old York'.... Throughout the whole story there is maintained a sense of contrast with modern life, and full descriptions are given of those vanished glories which made York one of the finest cities in the world."--_York Herald_

"Mr. Draper has done his duty by his Parish in a way that cannot be too widely imitated.... He describes the Church, a fine specimen of late Norman.... He tells the story of the Patrons and Incumbents, and gives a complete list.... Mr. Draper has piously preserved all the Mortuary Inscriptions. Among them we notice a name which will be familiar to some of our readers: John William Inchbold, painter and poet."--_Spectator._

"Mr. Draper has done his work well."--_The Times._

"In 'Adel and its Norman Church' the present Rector has enlarged a familiar picture and placed it in a worthier frame.... Adel and its Church are the embodiment of our National History for seven centuries, and Mr. Draper's book is of much more than local topographical value.... That little Norman temple the religious home of English country folk, so serene, so undisturbed by change, is a symbol of abiding verities which should be cooling now and then to dwell upon.... Apart from this the volume is valuable for its illustrations, which contain several not hitherto published.... The volume has been handsomely produced."--_Yorkshire Post._
