Oxford is one of the greatest cities in Europe. One of the foundation stones of Western Civilization, it has been for center of scholarship, pushing back the frontiers of knowledge. Oxford has made history and been shaped in its turn by the history of our continent and of our own country.
Inevitably, Oxford has been painted, photographed and written about, again and again, and this book shows why.

But it contains hidden charms as well as stately magnificence, and part of the attraction of this book is that it conveys so well the atmosphere of this remarkable city.
