Before Lonely Planet, this book was the essential accompaniment to any Victorian gentleman or lady's trip to one of the foremost cities of the United Kingdom. The city of Oxford has a long and prosperous history, and is renowned the world over as a centre of academic learning. At the end of the nineteenth century, the city, caught up in the Industrial Revolution, experienced rapid growth that transformed it into the Oxford we know today. Many deserted the countryside for the city life, and the population expanded with a new generation. Reprinted from original nineteenth-century texts, this is the original 'traveller's guide' to Oxford. Including many contemporary illustrations for the modern-day traveller's reference, The Victorian Traveller's Guide to Oxford will take readers on a guided tour of the city's fascinating past, highlighting its many points of interest.
