Content : Title from folder.

Content : Written on border: "1868" Printed on border: "Early English ornament is the most perfect, both in principle and in execution, of the Gothic period. There is as much elegance and refinement in modulations of form as there is in the ornament of the Greeks. It is always in perfect harmony with the structural features, and always grows naturally from them. It fulfils every one of the conditions which we desire to find in a perfect style of Art. But it remained perfect only so long as the style remained conventional. As this style became less idealised and more direct in imitation, its peculiar beauties disappeared, and it ceased to be an ornamentation of structural features, but became ornament applied." Includes additional text.
