Book offer: Loudon’s On the Laying Out, Planting, and Managing of Cemeteries; and on the Improvement of Churchyards.

By CMS in Recent publications

J. C. Loudon’s seminal work on cemeteries was originally published in London

in 1843 on very poor-quality paper and with an extremely small font.

Professor James Stevens Curl is proposing to bring out a limited, numbered,

finely bound, hardback, enlarged facsimile edition.

The new edition will be on good paper,

with an enlarged font, and will include a new annotated Introductory Essay on

Loudon’s involvement with cemeteries by Professor Curl, with Bibliography, a

colour portrait of Loudon, a facsimile of Loudon’s Obituary of 1844, a List of

Subscribers, and an Index compiled by Auriol Griffith-Jones.
