The Gate of Remembrance; The Story of the Psychological Experiment Which Resulted in the Discovery of the Edgar Chapel at Glastonbury. With a record of the finding of the Loretto Chapel in 1919.
Bond, Frederick Bligh. John Alleyne.

Book Description: Basil Blackwell, Oxford, 1921. Brown pictorial cloth. Hardback. Fourth Edition. Small octavo. xvi + 196pp. Five monochrome plates including frontispiece. Fold-out plan of Abbey. Many line drawings in text. Facsimiles of Automatic Script. Book Condition: Very Good. No dust-jacket. Corners and spine very slightly bumped. Light spotting to fore-edges and a few pages. A fascinating account of the unusual means of discovery of the chapel at Glastonbury where, legend has it, Christianity was introduced in Britain; the chapel was named for the great Saxon king Edgar, the Peaceable. In this controversial work, Bligh Bond, (1864-1945), an architect by trade, was employed by the Church of England to undertake the excavations at Glastonbury Abbey. A Freemason, Theosophist, and member of both the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia and the Society for Psychical Research, he applied the skills normally associated with psychism and Spiritualism, in addition to the more conventional archaeological and historical means when executing his task. He first used Captain John Allan Bartlett (John Alleyne) as a medium, and later others. As a consequence of these revelations his relations with the Church of England, which strongly disapproved of spiritualism, deteriorated, and he was dismissed in 1921. The Gate of Remembrance is his account of his work at the Abbey, and the psychical investigations that oft-times guided it. Three images.

Return of Owners of Land in 1873 in England and Wales, Somerset Section.
Her Majesty's Stationery Office

Published by Eyre & Spottiswoode for Her Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1875. Super Royal Quarto (13Ĺ in by 10ľin) in modern paper covered boards with labels on the upper board and spine, by Period Binders of Bath. 80pp in two columns with names, addresses of the owners their holdings and value. Binding is near perfect; a few pages have some light foxing. The Return of Owners of Land arose from the question put in the House of Lords on 19 February 1872 by the Earl of Derby. Thus, in 1872 Local Government Boards were ordered to compile a list of owners of land from ratings records. The Return shows the holding, in acres, roods and poles, and estimated yearly rental, of all holdings over 1 acre. It is organised by county and landowner and an address for each landowner also is given, but the address may not correspond to the location of the land and could be outside the county in question. These returns are also sometimes referred to as the Modern Domesday.
