Entered at Stationers' Vall, according to Act of

Parliament.

THIS Description of Oxford is intended, principally, for Strangers; the object in view, therefore, has been to make it a real Guide, a plain Directory, which will enable persons entirely ignorant of the place, to visit every College, Hall, and Public Building, with the utmost facility, from any part of Oxford. The plan is a regular Itinerary, taking the places according to their situation, by which new method the University and City may be easily and speedily perambulated. The Editor has not confined his object to buildings only; but has entered into a short account of the Government, Dresses, Degrees, Examinations, distinctive Ranks, and Manners and Customs of the Members of the University. In fact, every thing that can elucidate and explain the nature of the University, and afford information respecting its technical and local terms; its Buildings, Walks, Statues, Pictures, &c. he has laboured to present to his Readers in a concise and plain man.

ner, preceded by a Table of the Routes from the different points at which the Visitors may

be stationed. Those Colleges and Public Buildings, which are usually considered as most worthy, of the attention of Strangers, are marked thus (+); but the whole Tour of the University may, by the assistance of this Guide, be made in a short space of time, and the Visitor will be amply repaid for his trouble by the numerous interesting objects he will meet with in his walk. The situation of the Porter's Lodge of every College and Hall is pointed out, the Porter being the proper person to apply to in order to see the College, or to find the residence of any of its Members.

The Descriptions of Blenheim and Nuneham are upon the same plan as that of Oxford ; and the present arrangement of the Pictures at these places is minutely and accurately followed.
