This book has just arrived and I am delighted with it. The book itself is beautifully printed and bound: a pleasure to handle.

It is a work that can be accessed on more than one level. The first temptation (irresistible!) is to flick quickly through it and savour the many photographs and illustrations that evoke a flood of fond memories of happy years at Fitzwilliam. The photograph of my old Tutor is especially welcome.

Then, a more in-depth read: the content is well structured, dealing chronologically with Fitzwilliam's birth as a Hall, it's progress to being a college and the later incorporation of The Grove and completion of the architecture. The latter stages of the college's development have been handled very well and the book gives full credit to those whose careful thought gave rise to the College as it exists today. Had they stuck to the original plans, it would not have worked so well.

This is a fine book: of compelling interest to Fitzwilliam alumni. Thoroughly recommended as a high-quality, proud-to-own publication. Unhesitatingly, five stars.

Amazing to be able to read this book and fill in the knowledge gaps as to who the likes of Reddaway, Gaskoin and Thatcher really were and why they were so important to the history of the College........I was an Undergraduate in 1977-81 and vaguely knew that the Fitz originated in Trumpington Street about 100 years before but until now had no idea of what exactly the traumas were of its birth and the transition from Non-Collegiate status and of course the move to Huntingdon a highly recommended read to anyone associated with the College or indeed maybe someone who is considering applying and wants to understand the relatively short but eventful history.......
