And such wonderful examples 1 No finer windows exist than some at Seville, Toledo, etc, , and as for Leons surpassing ensemble, one can do no better than quote a correspondent who wrote, To enter Leon Cathedral is like walking into the glory of God We sometimes forget that the Low Countries were provinces of Spain during the blossoming period of Renaissance glass, and that Spain itself was then governed by a Provincial, Charles V, born at Ghent. Windows given either by that Spanish sovereign or in his honour are to be seen in all viii Foreword the important glass centres of those Low Countries.

This book aspires to no more than to guide the reader in comfortable fashion to the best old glass in Spain and its one-time province of mediaeval Flanders. It needs no one so prejudiced as the author to enthuse the traveller or to add him to the constantly growing army of glass-lovers the windows of sunny Spain and war-stricken Flandersunaided can do that. Come away then, and store your memorys picture gallery with windows that for years after will delight you beside your own fireside in that far-off continent discovered by an emissary of Spain when Spanish glass was at its best.
