Description

Since its humble beginnings as a ford for oxen across the river Thames in the tenth century, Oxford has been an inspiration to generations of writers and thinkers, who have admired its `dreaming spires' (Matthew Arnold), or warned of its excesses, as did Anthony Trollope: `Oxford is the most dangerous place to which a young man can be sent'. This compact gift book is packed full of witty, scandalous and entertaining quotations about this famous city from the Middle Ages to the current decade.
