Excerpt from Old Cornish Crosses When, with ever-increasing interest, I was led, some twelve years ago, to commence making measured drawings of the Ancient Crosses of my native county, I had no intention of producing a book on the subject. I was already well acquainted with Mr. J. T. Blight's 'Ancient Crosses and Antiquities of Cornwall, ' and my original idea was to draw only those which he had omitted. My difficulties, however, soon commenced. In the first place, it was necessary to re-draw all the ornate examples, since, practically, none of the ornament upon them had been shown. Then there were the numerous districts unexplored by Mr. Blight; and, lastly, many crosses had been discovered subsequent to the publication of his book. An entirely new work, therefore, seemed necessary, and one which should be systematically arranged, with the specimens classified and the whole of the ornament accurately delineated. I have endeavoured to complete this work by making and classifying a series of drawings of all the different examples in Cornwall, in such a manner as to enable a comparison to be made with similar examples in other localities; feeling that, unless this were done, no satisfactory conclusion could be formed regarding them.
