Description

Exeter Cathedral has one of the largest, and perhaps the earliest set of misericords in England. Hewett almost abandoned the project, but for certain of the Subscribers most interested in Antiquarian Subjects, who wished him rather to avail himself of the Anastatic Transfer Process, than to withdraw altogether his undertaking.  

'Mr. Hewett has therefore, at great personal inconvenience, caused the execution of the following outlines … The Publisher ventures to hope that all the Patrons of the work will be pleased to receive it, the more so as the impression has been strictly limited to Fifty Copies of the Small, and Ten of the Large Paper Editions’ (Advertisement).
