Product description

The University: An Illustrated History

Edition by Fernando Tejerina, University of Valladolid

Banco Santander/Turner, 2010.

Hardback; 250 x 290 mm; grey boards with titles blind-stamped on spine and front cover; 433 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Printed on good quality glossy paper and profusely illustrated, overwhelmingly in colour.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound though the book is very slightly cocked. Minimal marking on the dust jacket.

“The transmission of knowledge lies at the heart of civilization. In the ancient world, science drew life from two sources. Master artisans honed their practical wisdom and passed it on from one generation to the next. Elsewhere, philosophers, sages, and divines engaged in debate and lent increasingly complex form to human thought. These two traditions - technique and theory - have served ever since as the vessels of knowledge and of human experience itself. The University, written in a concise, readable style by distinguished scholars drawn from a wide range of disciplines, brings us the events, the people, the cities, and the institutions that gave shape to this vast and absorbing story. The closing section opens our eyes to fascinating prospects, and makes a robust contribution to the discussion on the challenges and uncertainties faced by universities today.”
