Few cities have a greater concentration of significant architecture than Oxford. Within a city of only 130,000 inhabitants there are important buildings, many of them of great beauty, from every period from the eleventh century down to the present. Geoffrey Tyack chronicles the architecturaldevelopment of Oxford--both University and City--from its origins to the late twentieth century, explaining the idiosyncracies of Oxford's architectural history, and placing the buildings within their historical context. His approach is chronological, and his emphasis on what can actually be seen.Although many books have been written about individual buildings and various aspects of Oxford architecture, no book of this kind has been published for many years.

In the early 20th century, Edward Thomas (1878-1917) was commissioned to write a history of Oxford to accompany the paintings of John Fulleylove (1845-1908). Oxford was published in 1903 but rather than accompanying the illustrations it was a masterpiece that aided Thomas' reputation as the quintessential English writer. The work is reprinted here along with eleven of Fulleylove's illustrations. The lengthy introduction by Lucy Newlyn places Oxford within the story of Thomas' life and other works, analysing his prose style and how this was developed in later pieces. Newlyn also discusses how Thomas' experiences as an undergraduate in Oxford are revealed in the piece, and how he portrayed a picture of Oxford that is personal and familiar, evocative and nostalgic of the pre-war city's architecture, history and customs.
