Excerpt from The Visitor's Guide to Oxford

In again reissuing the Visitor's what is best worth seeing, and to give him accurate information as to the objects seen: also to provide him with a useful memento of his visit, and by means of illustrations, to enable him to recall at a future time what he has seen.

A 'walk through' merely glancing at the outside of the buildings, with a 'peep' here and there into the Quadrangles of the Colleges, may be accomplished in three or four hours. The work, however, is mainly compiled for those who have time to go over the Colleges, and to do this even partially will occupy a full day.

The whole has been arranged in a continuous route starting from Carfax and returning to the Railway Station, and by following it a Visitor who wishes to see everything worth seeing will best economise his time. Under 'Notice to the Visitor' this route is given, and by consulting this, and referring to the Plan on the cover, the Visitor will be able to select what buildings he has time to visit, those most worthy of attention being marked with an asterisk.

Next to this a Time-Table is given shewing at what hours certain special buildings are open to Visitors; also the Services at College Chapels, &c.

In the account of the Colleges the numbers on the Foundation are left as they existed before 1882, since they are gradually changing, and it may be many years before they are strictly in accordance with the new Statutes.

At the end will be found a Chronological List of Foundations, &c., in Oxford, With Notices of Some Historical Events, together with a Chronological List of The Chief Existing Buildings in Oxford, which will enable those interested in architecture to find what is best illustrative of special periods. An Index is added which will afford easy means of reference.

By supplying as far as possible dates to the various buildings, with lists of pictures, portraits, &c., it is hoped the book will be rendered useful to the historical, the architectural, and the art student, as well as to the casual visitor.
