The Chapel of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire - Frederic Hood

Oxford University Press, 1967, Hardback.
Condition: Very Good. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners.

Illustrated with B&W and Colour photographs. From the foreword: “Nearly fifty years have passed since the Order of the British Empire was founded by His Late Majesty King George the Fifth, and nearly a decade since it was decided to make St. Paul’s Cathedral the church of the Order and to construct the Chapel of the Order in the crypt. The appeal which was then issued met with a generous response. The result has been a distinguished addition to the fabric and furnishings of the Cathedral. This little book is a description and record of the Order and of its new Chapel. It is also a tribute to the members and a grateful acknowledgement to the subscribers.”

Foreword or introduction by His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip. Size: 10" x 7¼". Grey boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 64 pages.
