13 July 2018

The effigy, by Sir George Gilbert Scott, of Richard Dawes, Dean of Hereford, in Hereford Cathedral. He is depicted with books under his pillow.

Hereford Cathedral School: A history over 800 years is by Howard Tomlinson, a former headmaster of the school, and is a splendidly produced hardback scholarly book of about 700 pages (Logaston Press, £25 (£22.50); 978-1-910839)
