Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press

After staying for three months in London, the author proceeded to Oxford and visited the University of Oxford. He was amazed by the school's beauty and clean appearance, noting its elegant buildings and ancient churches which remain as if they had been recently erected. The roofs of the cathedrals are covered with sheets of lead, and the walls are typically made of dark stone. The libraries contain numerous books in Persian and Arabic. There is also an observatory, which consists of nine stories, each of which houses works on astronomy and astrology.
