Product description

Review

'This is a book to be savored; sketching out a history of Oxford, its text is as lively and informative as its photographs are absorbing.'



"The Bursar should order twenty copies and prepare for an invasion of wealthy tourists."



'The definitive work on its subject.'



'Mouthwateringly photographed by Andrew Lawson, the book admirably illustrates the poetry and range of the gardens... an important record of an imperilled gardening culture.'

'The definitive work on its subject.'

"...scholarly but conversational in tone [...] witty and full of perceptive comment"

"The Bursar should order twenty copies and prepare for an invasion of wealthy tourists."

'This is a book to be savored; sketching out a history of Oxford, its text is as lively and informative as its photographs are absorbing.'
