Editorial Reviews


A sumptuous production. (...) The erudition is cumulatively overwhelming, the entertainment liberally distributed. HISTORY (A) sumptuously produced book-remarkably good value for its length. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW A fine example of the vogue for large-scale histories of Oxford and Cambridge colleges. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORYThere can be no doubt that Johnians...will find the college's new history diverting reading. (...) Handsomely produced by Boydell, based on exhaustive archival research, elegantly written and replete with the kind of biographical anecdote that gives spice to any institutional history. TLS
