Since the publication latest post regarding Water Storage controversies, The Ragged Society of Antiquarian Ramblers' mail bag has been inundated with requests regarding Ryan Bryan's classic work, 'The Hydro Logic of External Ecclesiastical Water Storage Vessels: Towards a Typology' (1952). The well-thumbed tome you will observe here (see above), was purchased by Madame Contributions Secretary in an antiquarian booksellers in Trumpington in the year of it's publication. 

It is with slight regret that we have to inform Our Reader that this book is not currently in print; and, furthermore, it is an extremely rare work - one only to be found in the library of persons of quality. 



  1. One dropped his copy into a galvinised tank at Trunch many years back. I could've died! In fact, I have...

  2. Father used to keep his books behind the cistern in the outside toilet till mother found them and flushed them away.

  3. 'Topology' or 'Typology'? One is most perplexed as to which one applies here!

  4. I have a copy of this rare tome signed by Ryan Bryan herself!
