Review:

'A delightful tour of the eccentric, Anglican world of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.' -- Ian Hislop 'Malcolm Johnson has skilfully recovered these caricaturists from the magazine rack of history.' -- Revd Richard Coles 'Victorian Worthies came when I needed a day away from the laptop, and I devoured it in the garden at a sitting.' -- Diarmaid MacCulloch * Prof. of History of the Church *
