Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi. Great Britain, Volume 3, Part 1
British Academy; Oxford University Press, 1987 - Crafts & Hobbies - 160 pages
This is the first part of what will be the only fully comprehensive catalogue of the stained glass of York Minster. In dealing first with the west window and its fellows, the authors are considering the second largest single area of glass in the Minster- the window that dominates the nave and through its patronal and stylistic connections is one of the most important surviving monuments of English painting of the mid-14th century.
