Comstock wrote, "This plate well exemplifies that great quality of mediaeval building of the kind depicted - its living character, by which it preserved its dignity and harmony in spite of diversity of dates and purposes, and the individuality of the several parts, and needed no controlling 'design' for the whole" (page 88).
