St. JOHN BAPTIST COLLEGE in the University of Oxford: founded AD 1555 by Sir Thomas Whit, Alderman of London on the site of the Cistercian COLLEGE of St. BERNARD, founded AD 1436 by Henry Chichele, Archbishop of Canterbury

Originally published in 1923, this is a photo-engraving [i.e. printed from a metal plate], made from a 1923 original. It was printed by hand on an Albion hand-press, on acid-free laid paper

This is an excellent copy, never mounted or framed, of an Edmund Hort New view of St. John’s College.

New was born in Evesham in 1871, moved to Oxford in 1905, and died there in 1931.

He was heavily influenced by the Arts & Crafts Movement, especially A.J.Gaskin and William Morris, and became a master of pen & ink drawing.
