(p.626) Conclusion
The History of Oxford University Press: Volume I

Ian Gadd

Oxford University Press

This Conclusion considers the extent to which 1780 was a transformational year for the Press as it moved to take control of the Bible Press, and thus gained complete oversight of all the University's printing and publishing activities. It notes that the Delegates' minutes say little about the events leading up to 1780, but that the significance of its decision is reflected in crucial changes to how the Press kept its records. 1780 thus marks the beginning of a transition from a pre-modern to a modern university press.
