Book Description

The glories and treasures of Cambridge - some famous, others much less well-known than they should be - are so extraordinary that they need to be presented and assessed afresh for each successive generation. Indeed the ever­continuing creation of new colleges, buildings and institutions means that each generation, including very notably our own, has something novel to see and admire. It is the purpose of Michael Grant, formerly a Fellow of Trinity College, to show how the University and its various organisms have developed from their beginnings until now, and how people at Cambridge have lived and worked and been stimulated by what they saw around them. The same point is made by Ernest Frankl's photographs; no one who sees them can fail to appreciate that Cambridge, in addition to all its other gifts and qualities, is a wonderful storehouse of beautiful things to be gazed at and enjoyed. With over 100 colour photographs and 1 b/w. map. Includes index & list of colleges.
