Über diesen Titel


This study, which uses some material which was not previously available, covers the history of Balliol College which has existed as a community of scholars on its present site since 1263, making it the oldest college in either Oxford or Cambridge. In the early 19th century it introduced a competitive entrance examination, the first college to do so, becoming an influence in Victorian and Edwardian times. Its history is traced from its foundation and particular emphasis is placed on the 19th and early 20th centuries. Better-known members of the college include poets and writers (Matthew Arnold, Gerard Manley Hopkins, A.H. Clough, Grahame Greene, Anthony Powell and Robert Browning), heads of government (Prime Ministers Asquith, Macmillan and Heath), heads of state (HM King Olav of Norway, Dr Richard von Weizsacker. Religious leaders are also noted and include Archbishops Tait, Temple and Lang; Cardinals Manning and Heard; Chief Rabbi Israel Brodie; and Shogi Effendi) as well as other distinguished figures.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
