Excerpt from The History and Antiquities of the Cathedral Church of St. Saviour (St. Marie Overie): With a New Appendix and Ninety-Three Illustrations

Since the first Edition of this History was published, less than two years ago, great things have happened in our midst. The Diocese of Southwark has been created, and St. Saviour's appointed its Cathedral' by an Order of His Majesty in Council: Bishop Talbot has been translated from Rochester, and enthroned as Bishop of the new See: a great Inauguration Service of Thanksgiving has been held here in the presence of our Sovereign, Edward VII., Queen Alexandra, and other members of the Royal Family: the Consecration of two Bishops (gloucester and Llandaff) by the Archbishop of Canterbury, assisted by seventeen Bishops, has here taken placef: and the Harvard Window has been erected as the first instalment of an enterprise, already well in hand, for converting the present Vestry into a Memorial Chapel, in honour of our John Harvard, the founder of the great American University which bears his name.

The New appendix (pp. 338 which constitutes the chief fresh feature of this second edition, furnishes an account of these late events, and of others still more recent 1 and supplies several new particulars bearing upon the general history of the Cathedral. Pages i. To viii containing a striking portrait of our Bishop, and an excellent full-length exterior view of the fabric, are new: pages 1 to 15 have been reprinted and revised: several new illustrations added, and others improved.

It is hoped that this volume - the result of much study and research, carried out in the intervals of other duties, and extending over many years - and the guide, just published, which is an Epitome of it, may, in spite of the imperfections which they contain, save the Visitor from being misguided by unofficial and inaccurate publications in his wanderings round this ancient and beautiful Shrine, which, the more it is seen and explored, the more it is admired and loved. It need only be added, to quote from the Preface of 1904, that, 'if this book will help in some small degree to make our south london minster still more widely known and increasingly useful, it will not have been written in vain.'
