Description

This is not just `another book about Cambridge' but a unique publication that brings together all thirty-one colleges that comprise the world-famous University of Cambridge. Following a brief introduction and history of each college, there follows details of that college's unique features, including buildings, libraries, famous people and gardens, many of which are chosen to encompass, through some lateral thinking, a very wide range of topics associated with the University as a whole. Thoroughly researched and fully illustrated by the author with a wealth of stunning photographs, this book gives a unique insight into the workings, both past and present, of Cambridge University and all its colleges. The Colleges of Cambridge University is a must-have for anyone interested in this historic institution and its courtyards, quads and characters.show more
