5.0 out of 5 stars A high quality, proud-to-own publication, 2 Oct 2013
This review is from: Fitzwilliam: The First 150 Years of a Cambridge College (Hardcover)
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.
