The History of Oxford University Press: Volume I

This chapter considers the role of Fell's successors, including Henry Aldrich and Arthur Charlett, in the management of the Press, their relationship with the University, and the University's relationship with the Crown. As the conflicts between the University of Oxford and the Stationers' Company and King's Printers in London over the printing of Bibles and other privileged items grew more heated, the University was called upon to defend its privilege and its appointed printers. Eventually, the dispute was settled when the University agreed to accept payments not to print certain texts; these arrangements were later clarified and standardized, leading to greater, more regular income for the Delegates. The chapter also considers the publication of the Oxford Almanack and Clarendon's History of the Rebellion, and discusses the political and financial reasons for the naming of the Clarendon Printing House, the new home for Bible and learned presses in Oxford.
