Description

‘Few cities,’ Jan Morris observes, ‘have been much more loved, loathed, and celebrated.’ This book has become a classic account of the character, history, mores, buildings, climate, and people of one of Britain’s most fascinating cities. ‘A book of outstanding excellence, with a sweep of knowledge and a distinction of style such as I have never before encountered in a work of this sort … Brilliant alike in observation and imagination … brings the very stones of Oxford to life’Sunday Telegraph.
