In the selection of the subjects for this work, a preference has been
given to such as appeared most likely to afford useful lessons to the
modern artist; and, with this view, the early varieties of style which
distinguish the works of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries have
been passed over; the oldest of these “ Examples ” being dated in
the reign of Edward I.* The omission of any excimples of the Early
Pointed or Lancet Style, will perhaps be censured by some critics,
who may insist that a few subjects of that beautiful style ought
to have had a place. In extenuation of any such charge, it may
be pleaded, that the present work does not offer the display of a
complete series of examples in all the successive variations of style;
but merely exhibits a selection of such as have appeared best suited
