Excerpt from An Historical Survey of the Ecclesiastical Antiquities of France, 1809: With a View to Illustrate the Rise and Progress of Gothic Architecture in Europe

The following work is printed conformably to a desire expressed by the Author at his death: and his friends, in the execution of this duty, have proceeded under the conviction that it is far too valuable to be withheld from the press. Notwithstanding this favourable opinion, they are sensible that to the faults which may be inherent in the work itself, must be added those which are inseparable from publications of a posthumous nature; many such may possibly be discovered, which in the eye of candour will admit of extenuation. The unfinished state, however, of the following pages, and the premature death of their writer, appear to render necessary some prefatory information concerning both; in order that the proposed plan and objects of the work may be more clearly understood, and the qualifications possessed by the author for such an undertaking duly appreciated.

The History of the Ecclesiastical Architecture of France occupied, at intervals, the last four years of the author's life. The first project of such a work, originated in the course of an extensive journey made with me through France and Italy in the years 1802 and 1803, during which he examined with minute attention the chief remains of early Christian buildings in those countries.
