The Encyclopaedia of Oxford
The encyclopaedia was published in hardback and then a paperback version (Papermac, reissued in 1992, ISBN 0-333-48614-5), but only one edition was produced and copies are now sought after, typically selling for more than the original selling price of £25 for the hardbook edition, even in paperback form.
The book mainly consists of detailed historical entries in alphabetical order. Many entries concern the University of Oxford and its colleges. Appendices include lists of notable people who have held important offices associated with Oxford, especially the University, in date order.
