Quarta di copertina


Our British dovecotes, too, are growing fewer every year. Many have vanished alto gether, some by wanton demolition, others by neglect. The time has surely come at which to chronicle a few of those that still remain; to draw attention to their frequent beauty; call to mind the interest which attaches to them; plead for their more careful preservation, and — not altogether needlessly — make clear the reason why they came to occupy their places in our land. Something personal is due from the writer; on one hand to the reader of this volume, on the other to the many who have lent their aid in its production. Born in Herefordshire, a county in which dovecotes are both numerous and beautiful, I had often felt surprise and dis appointment at the lack of printed information regarding these delightful buildings; and I have at length ventured to attempt something.
