A scarce and concise history of printing at the presses of Oxford University, recorded by Library Hub at Oxford only, from which record we have dated it, and which also lists it as a reprint of an article from 'The British Printer'. This copy was presented by Horace Hart (1840-1916), who was controller of the press between 1883 and 1915; it later made its way into the collection of book designer and print historian Ruari McLean (1917-2006).
