The University Press Oxford free pdf Excerpt from The University Press Oxford: Illustrations of One of the Seven Grands Prix Gained by the Press at the Brussels International Exhibition 1910 The Press at Oxford has had three lives. Its first period of activity came to an end in 1486-7, and sixteen different books comprise its output. One of these is noteworthy as having its colophon in red, affording the earliest instance of printing in colours in England- another contains the earliest woodcut-border known in England- a third, which is assumed to be a product of the Oxford Press, is Cicero's Oratio pro Milone, the first classic printed in England. It is supposed that Theodoric Rood, coming from Cologne, printed these books by himself at Oxford. The life of the second Press was brief in the extreme. It lasted from 1517 to 1519, and only eight of its publications are known. All, except a broadside, bear the arms of the University, and three are issued cum privilegio, i.e. of the Chancellor. All the provincial presses of the first half of the sixteenth century were similarly short-lived. Continuous Activity since 1585 The third epoch dates from the year 1585, when with 100 lent by the University, Joseph Barnes, bookseller, of Oxford, began printing, and the Oxford Press has been in continuous activity ever since. The moving spirit in initiating this enterprise was the Earl of Leicester, the favourite of Queen Elizabeth. At first the printing was carried on in hired premises. In 1586 appeared the first Greek book, six selected homilies of St. Chrysostom, and ten years later Hebrew type is met with. In 1595 appeared Wermueller's Perl mewn adfyd, a Welsh translation of an English version of the original German, with the new imprint 'yn Rhydychen', the latter being the Welsh word for a ford of Oxen.
