THE OLD SCHOOL PRESS

An opening of the engravings from Michael Burghers, Oxford engraver.
 


The book contains eight engravings, all printed by master printer Jim Nottingham from Burghers's original copper plates. The plates we selected from those that still remain in the archives at Oxford University Press were chosen to represent something of the range of work that Burghers did for the Press.

The engraving on the left is a very fine piece in a florid style, while that on the right shows the interior of one end of the Duke Humfrey reading room at the Bodleian Library.
