It has been written that “no Anglo-Catholic should go to Florence without making pilgrimage to his resting place if it can now be found. It matters more that the Anglican Communion has well-nigh forgotten him who, to use the felicitous phrase of Newman, ‘when hearts were failing, bade us stir up the strength that was in us, and betake ourselves to our true Mother.” See Desmond Morse-Boycott, Lead, Kindly Light: Studies of Saints and Heroes of the Oxford Movement (Macmillan, 1933).~~Uncommon in commerce.

Very Good binding.
