1927. In the first half of this volume, dealing with Northern France, Mr. Bumpus groups the cathedrals in their respective Archiepiscopal Provinces. Thus: Amiens, Beauvais, Chalons and Soissons follow Rheims; Bayeux, Coutances, Evreux and Seez are grouped under Rouen; Blois, Chartres, Orleans and Versailles under Paris, and so on. Those churches only are described which are actually the seats of bishops in the present day, so that many noble cathedrals, suppressed at the Revolution, such as Auxerre, Laon, Lisieux, Noyon, Senlis and Saint Omer are omitted. In the second half, which deals with the Southern portion of France, he groups them in their respective Architectural Provinces because of the opportunity it affords for some remarks upon local peculiarities which are more marked in churches of the environing district than in cathedrals where provincial localisms have, to a very considerable extent disappeared before the march of architectural progress and development.
