About this Item

From the Today and Tomorrow Series. 95 pages, size 6.5 inches tall by 4.5 inches and a 24 page catalogue to the rear. ' This book, an answer to Julian Hall's Alma Mater in the same series, is an attempt to assess the future of the University from an undergraduate point of view. From a survey o£ its social and intellectual life, the author concludes that the University is split into two rival camps : the adherents of the newer culture, typified by Science, and those of the older culture, typified by Classics and Philosophy. These latter, he asserts are the only participants in the real intellectual life of Oxford. ' In his prophecy of the future, the whole system of Science-teaching, state-scholarship system, women students, and recent benefactors to the University, alike receive the lash of his reactionary scorn ; and he looks forward to a time when these influences will have been all banished to a vast technical-school-cum-laboratory that will be Cambridge, leaving Oxford as the last citadel of the older culture .' Book - in Very Good black boards with a paper label to the front board and spine - minor bumping and rubbing to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine and slight blooming in certain lights. Contents, light browning to the first couple of pages, previous owner's inscription to the free front end paper which has marginally transferred itself to the front pastedown otherwise clean, bright and tightly bound.
