Էջ 20 - The Norman cathedral of York was built about 1080, and that of Lichfield at an uncertain date. Between 1154; — 1181 Archbishop Eoger substituted for the original chancel at York a long square-ended choir, with the aisle carried behind the end. At Lichfield, during the same period, the large chapel was built at the end of the Norman apse ; and about the beginning of the thirteenth century the whole Norman eastern termination was, as at York, replaced by a long squareended choir with the low aisles...

For that his nobles, though they were loyal and obedient, yet did not cooperate with him, but let every man go his own way. He was not afraid of an able man, as Lewis the Eleventh was.
Էջ 354 - As tlie inner extremity was found to be blocked up with clay, an excavation was made on the top of the tumulus, and the walls of the building were soon found. They were carefully traced, and it then became evident that they formed a chamber about 10 ft. square at the top, but widening towards the bottom. The chamber was completely filled with the stones which had originally formed the upper part of the walls and roof, and with the clay which had completed the top of the tumulus. The interior has...

Էջ 20 - Lichfield the elongation of the eastern part was begun at the extreme east, beyond the existing choir, by the Lady-chapel, in late Decorated, under Bishop Langton, 1296 — 1321, and followed by taking down the choir, and continuing the same work on its site westward. The works at York followed in the same order, but forty or fifty years later, by first erecting the presbytery outside the existing choir, and then taking down the latter, and continuing the work of the presbytery to form the new choir....
Էջ 25 - Several huge stones of a pyramidal form, some of them 9 feet high, and 4 feet thick, standing in a row for near a mile, at an equal distance, which seem to have been erected in memory of some transaction there which by length of time is lost.
Էջ 378 - ... singular proof of the figure and impression Mr Fox made on his first appearance as an orator. A young artist, and, I believe, a reporter of debates, a Mr Surtees, of Mainsforth, in the county of Durham, happened to be in the gallery when he first spoke. At that period, no stranger was allowed to make notes, or take any paper or note-book into the gallery for that purpose. But this gentleman, struck with the appearance of the youthful orator, tore off part of his shirt, and sketched on it, with...
Էջ 354 - ... completed the top of the tumulus. The interior has now been cleared out, and a short description will give some idea, although a very imperfect one, of its plan and appearance. The passage has been traced to the margin of the base of the tumulus. It is 2 ft. 4 in. wide at its mouth, and appears to have been the same in height, but the covering stones had been removed for about 22^ ft. It then increases in dimensions to 8| ft. in width, and 4 ft. 4 in. in height, and continues so for 26 ft , when...
Էջ 120 - Museum copy had lost all the woodcuts of its outer side completely ; but, as a similar pattern had been used in Matthew's Bible of 1539, it was thought that a skilful amalgamation would well serve the purpose. However, after all, it was but the junction of the humanum caput and the cervix equinus, for Matthew had adopted Latin texts to illustrate his woodcuts, but Coverdale's were all in English. To make the matter worse, a late eminent bookseller prepared at some expense a wood-block, to perpetuate...
Էջ 368 - ... from every centre of civilization, that we found still in use some of the processes employed by the Etruscans. There yet exists, in fact, in this region of Italy, a special school of traditional jewellery, somewhat similar — not certainly in taste or elegance of design, but at least in method of workmanship — to the ancient art. The beautiful peasant girls of these districts, when at their wedding feasts, wear necklaces and long earrings called Navicelle, much resembling in workmanship the...
