The Oxford University Calendar, 1853
Corrected to December 31, 1852. A rare early copy.
First edition. Hardback in paper covered boards with printed titling. 19 × 11cm, 20pp ads, 499pp + 19pp .
Quite a rare early Oxford University Calendar, giving all manner of information on the colleges, members and students, as well as scholarships, examinations, the university presses and galleries.
A previous owner has signed the front pastedown, this is Arthur Chichele Chambre Vaughan of Burtton Hall, Loppington, Shropshire.
Whilst the contents are in good condition with clean pages, the spine backstrip is detached to the front joint and missing for the bottom half. This has lead to a little weakening to the inner binding but it remains in decent readable condition.
