Brasenose

£59.99

Product description

Brasenose College was founded in 1509 by a Bishop (William Smith) and a lawyer (Richard Sutton). Both came from the North West of England, and the college has always been proud of its links with Lancashire and Cheshire. But over the centuries Brasenose or 'B.N.C.' as it is usually known has expanded its reputation worldwide. This is the first full-scale history of Brasenose, timed to coincide with its Quincentenary. The setting is broad: it relates the college to the university, andthe university to the wider world of politics. Using archives, letters and diaries, it aims to recreate something of the variety and texture of academic life over a period of five centuries: the learning, the conversation, the sport; the intellectual milieu and financial context; the architectureinside and out; the food and drink, the quirks of personality, the little dramas, and absurdities that make up the small change of corporate living.

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
