That bynds in wonders chayne entendemente!
That doth aloof the ayrie skyen kiss,
And seemeth mountaynes joyned by cemente,
From Godde hys greete and wondrous storehouse sente.

TO

CHARLES JOSEPH HARFORD,

ESQ. F.S.A.

DEAR SIR,

your native

I have much pleasure in dedicating this volume to you, because you have manifested, on many occasions, a laudable and zealous attachment to archæological literature, and to the antiquities of city in particular. Among the public edifices of Bristol, there is no one more celebrated, than ReDCLIFFE CHURCH. Chatterton has enrolled its name in the annals of poetry and of critical literature; and the beauties and peculiarities of its architecture have long attracted the admiration of the antiquary, and artist, and indeed of every person of taste and science. As a whole

it is grand and imposing: and its details are curious, beautiful, and elegant. To display these characteristics, and elucidate the history of the building, is the express object of this volume, which is inscribed to you, with feelings of respect, and very sincere pleasure,

BY

THE AUTHOR.

July 1813.
