WADHAM COLLEGE, OXFORD An.Domi. 1910. Founded AD 1610 by Nicholas Wadham & Dorothy his Wife

Originally published in 1910, this is a photo-engraving [i.e. printed from a metal plate], made from a 1910 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  Wadham 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.
