Tom Brown at Oxford is a novel by Thomas Hughes, first published in 1861. It is a sequel to the better-known Tom Brown's Schooldays. The book was out of print for many years but is available in Britain from Wordsworth Classics with 'Tom Brown's Schooldays' and as the copyright on the text has expired is now available on the Project Gutenberg ebook site.
The illustrator Sydney Prior Hall (1842–1922), portrait painter and illustrator, was one of the leading reportage artists of the later Victorian period.
