The History of Oxford University Press: Volume I

Andrew Hegarty

Oxford University Press

The chapter considers the relationship between printing and publishing and the University of Oxford by examining how the activities and reforms of the Press affected, or were affected by, university governance, the revision and publication of university statutes, the changing composition of the Delegacy, and the University's location in the broader political landscape. The significance of the Press's income and expenditures for the University's finances is discussed, with particular attention to the support for learned printing and to the changes in the management of the privilege. The chapter also examines the buildings of the Press, first the Sheldonian Theatre and later the Clarendon Printing House, in the context of the architectural and scholarly environment of the University of Oxford, with particular attention given to the influence of William Lancaster and George Clark, local patron of the architect Nicholas Hawksmoor, in the progress and design of university buildings.
