White paper covers with printed titles. Covers rubbed and creased, covers almost detached. An acceptable copy of this scarce publication. ** The Warham Guild. (Originally published by the Anglican Bibliopole as Paper no. 12 (1987) . The Warham Guild was founded in London November 1912 to augment the studies of the Alcuin Club and the directives of The Parson's Handbook, and to carry out "the making of all the 'Ornaments of the Church and of the Ministers thereof' according to the standard of the Ornaments Rubric, and under fair conditions of labour". It is an indication of the founders' outlook, emphasis, and commitment to the English Use that it was named for the last Archbishop of Canterbury before the break with Rome. The Guild's influential Advisory Committee was headed by Percy Dearmer, who continued in that capacity until his death in 1936, when he was succeeded by Jocelyn Perkins, Sacrist of Westminster Abbey. From its beginning the Committee was composed of an extremely able group including Maurice Bell, F. E. Brightman, E. Hermitage Day, E. E. Dorling, F. C. Eeles. G. Kruger-Gray, and several women. "Besides providing vestments, furnishing altars, and acting for craftsmen in wood and metal, the Guild" - according to the Handbook of 1932 - "is able to offer valuable advice and help, architectural and ecclesiological, in any work connected with the fabric of our churches". Dearmer wrote in his introduction to Leaflet No. 25 "one of the chief objects, therefore, of the Warham Guild is to co-operate with artists and craftsmen in order that examples of all kinds of work might be constantly on view at the Guild's headquarters and to give assurance that all work ordered through the Guild is produced by trustworthy craftsmen".
