Examines the important contribution of Augustus Wellby Northmore Pugin (1812-52) in the revival of memorial brasses in English churches, an art that had declined since the middle ages. Puts Pugin's writings and many designs in the context of 19th century religious revival and the rising fortunes of the Catholic Church; and shows how his collaboration with metalworker John Hardman changed the attitudes about memorial brasses and restored a lost standard of craftsmanship. Well illustrated, largely by brass rubbings. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
