The Public Monuments and Sculpture Association was founded in 1991 to encourage the study and conservation of Britain's public sculpture and commemorative and decorative monuments. The volumes of its National Recording Project provide detailed catalogues of significant sculptures, excluding works in art galleries and museums. Each book comprises an introduction to the region; illustrated entries on individual works arranged by location; biographies of the artists; and a glossary and index.
Among many notable works in the volume for Bristol are Rysbrack's renowned equestrian statue William III (1736) in Queen Square and Eric Gill's headstone for his friend Abigail Chute in Canford Cemetery.
