Magdalen College Restoration
This is a fascinating insight into the restoration of, arguably, the most beautiful, memorable and prestgious College in Oxford.
Three essays: A loyal but troublesome college, 1458 - 1672; The College, King James II and the Revolution 1687 - 1688; The 'Intruded' president and fellows.
The essays are set out with clarity and erudition combining detail gleaned from meticulous research set in a fertile ground of personal knowledge.
The book is written in a highly readable linguistic format free from the pedantry and dogmatism one sometimes finds in such works where the authors have strong affiliation with the subject.
I most heartily recommend this work to those seeking clarification and commentary of the history of this great College.
