ALL SOULS COLLEGE OXFORD.
Photogravure
. Artist: Emery Walker after Edmund Hort New - Published by Edmund Hort New: 17 Worcester Place Oxford A.D. 1923 .Size: Image 331 x 410 mm Sheet 471 x 638 mm The borders of the sheet are very slightly worn, the left hand side with some spotting and a 40 mm. vertical darkened area, the right margin Has a similar 75 mm wide vertical area. ASK FOR PHOTOGRAPHS OF CORNERS AND MARGINS. The image itself is fine and clear.Edmund Hort New ( 1871 - 1931) , English artist, member of the Birmingham Group and leading illustrator of his day was was born in Evesham Worcestershire. He studied at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art under Edward R. Taylor (headmaster of the school) and A. J. Gaskin, becoming known in the 1890s as an illustrator in the black-and-white style of the Arts and Crafts movement. He specialised in pen and ink drawings of rural and urban landscapes, old buildings and their interiors, architectural features, and also designed bookplates. In his early years he worked with Ruskin and other associated Arts and Crafts artists. New provided illustrations for the English Illustrated Magazine and was commissioned by the Bodley Head publishing house to work on critically acclaimed editions of books, such as The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton and The Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White.In 1895 New was invited to meet William Morris at Kelmscott Manor, and went on to provide design work for the Kelmscott Press as well as illustrating Morris's two-volume biography by J. W. Mackail. Between 1896 and 1914, New provided hundreds of illustrations for over 50 books for various publishers He also taught drawing to T E Lawrence In 1905 New moved to Oxford where he started work on a series of drawings of the University of Oxford colleges, based on the David Loggan's 1675 aerial perspectives, a project which was to occupy him for the rest of his life and remained unfinished. The drawings were engraved by Emery Walker and sold as the "New Loggan Prints". He also provided further illustrations for a series of books called the "College monographs" New was a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers).Sanders of Oxford describe the printing process as follows: These prints were made through a relatively new process at the time - photo engraving. Like photogravures the print is made by transferring a photo to a copper plate and then printing it. With the E.H. New prints, a contact print of New's pen and ink drawing was made and the large negative attached to a plate which was then exposed in an acid bath, the acid only biting where the negative was clear; thus, creating an engraved plate of New's drawing. The prints were available separately at shops in Oxford such as Ryman's in the early part of the 20th century and are on a cotton wove paper with an anvil watermark i.e. the paper is from stock made for the Kelmscott press.

SUGDEN, VICTOR (COMP. AND ED.)
An Oxford Diary.
. 2009, 437pp. in glossy wrappers bearing armorial coloured images of Oxford and its university.
¶ A collection of over 6,000 dated events from the rich history of Oxford, researched from documents, diaries, contemporary newspapers, reference books, tombstones, foundation stones, etc. starting in the year 634 (Berinus) Events important and trivial, grave and gay, concerning Town and Gown, Church and State, people, places and politics, weather and transport, sports, games and pastimes, cinemas and theatres. Events that have moulded the history of Oxford and in many instances have influenced the world. An Oxford Diary was complied by Victor Sugden over several years and produced as an A4 300+ page loose leaf document. He gave it to the Oxford City Library because the cost of short run printing at the time was prohibitive. By 2009 there were companies setup that could produce and print any text only book at extremely reasonable cost in a few days. The document was converted into digital form by Brian Leahy who scanned the pages in OCR (Optical Character Recognition), made the necessary corrections (OCR notoriously produces random inaccurate scans), and then set the digital document in Microsoft Word for printing production. Maurice Baker designed the cover and produced the prelims before submitting the book for production The result has produced a 15.5x23cm size book of 437 pages. Set in Times New Roman at The Eyrie Press, Leatherhead. - - Victor Sugden was born in 1925 in Nice France where his father was a photographer working on cruise liners. The family returned to England when he was six months old and lived in Llanberis at the foot of Snowden for four years until they moved to Liss in Hampshire. He trained as an electrician before war service in Burma for five years. After military service he worked at the Oxford University Press for 36 years as a reader and examinations officer. He was also editor of the Clarendonian (works magazine). He took partial retirement to work at the University Examination Schools as Administrator and died in 1998.
