"A Great Gothic Fane: The Catholic Church of St. John the Baptist, Norwich ; with Historical Retrospect of Catholicity in Norwich"; printed 1913; published by WT Pike & Co, Brighton; 310pp + illustrations.

This copy, as is seen on the flyleaf inscription, was owned by Mr John Edward Dore, son of Mr Thomas Dore "The Governor" who was Clerk of Works at the St John the Baptist Church construction project from 1906 until completed. Mr JE Dore's contribution was as his father's "right hand man" presumably from 1906 to 1912, during which time he looked after various construction tasks.

Mr JE Dore has added a number of ink annotations regarding individuals and aspects of the building of St John's.
