A FEW PRESS NOTICES, ETC.
"Dr. Cotton's monograph is a contribution of great value.… The history is illustrated with plans and drawings of the convent at different periods."— Times Literary Supplement.
"The story of this first Franciscan House, as it is told by Dr. Charles Cotton, the Honorary Librarian of Canterbury Cathedral, in a learned but by no means heavy book, 'The Grey Friars of Canterbury,' recently published by the Manchester University Press."—The Times.
"C'est à l'histoire de cette premiere fondation franciscaine en Angleterre qu'est consacré le petit livre de M. Cotton. C'est un fort bon travail; l'auteur connait bien son sujet, sa documentation est complte en sûre, son exposé précis, son plan clair. En résumé: un bon livre qui fait grand honneur à son auteur."—Revue d'Histoire Franciscaine.
"Every visitor to Canterbury will be glad to have this volume when going over the remains of the Friary and re-creating in imagination a picture of the coming of the Friars seven centuries ago."—Saturday Review.
"This reprint of a fine piece of work … is most opportune."— Church Times.
"In its new form it retains the letterpress and the delightful illustrations and plans. … Many besides visitors to Canterbury will appreciate the devoted enthusiasm as well as the careful historical research which have contributed to the making of this book."—Guardian.
"The book is well written and contains' interesting matter for the general reader, as well as for the antiquarian and student,"—Bookman.
"The net effect is a finished treatise that deals in turn with ecclesiasticism, archaeology, the foundation of educational centres, and ameliorative institutions and many other subjects of engrossing interest. 'The Grey Friars of Canterbury' is at once a text-book of historical value and a romance of idealism."—Thanet Advertiser.
"Par cette belle œuvre d'une érudition si fouillée, qui est un modile de documentation et l'exposition, la 'British Society of Franciscan Studies' se trouve une fois de plus à la tête du mouvement historique franciscanisant."—(Signed) Paul Sabatier.
