9780711232181: Oxford College Gardens

The gardens of Oxford's thirty or so colleges are surprisingly varied in style, age and size, ranging from the ancient mound in the middle of New College to the fine modernist design which is St Catherine's. The eighteenth-century landscape school is represented in the magnificent acreage of Worcester, while the twentieth-century vogue for rock gardening is reflected at St John's. Founded in 1621, the university's Botanic Garden is the oldest botanic garden in Britain, holds one of the most diverse plant collections in the world, and has been a source of inspiration for writers from Lewis Carroll to Philip Pullman. From the bijou corners of Corpus Christi to the wide open lawns of Trinity, Oxford's gardens are full of surprises and hidden corners - not least the fellows' or masters' gardens, which are usually kept resolutely private, but can be enjoyed here.

In this book Tim Richardson's elegant, authoritative analysis combines with Andrew Lawson's glorious photographs to reveal the full interest and charm of Oxford's college gardens.

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."



'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.'
