Both University of Oxford volumes are approximately 360 pages, containing full-colour images. The dimensions are 29.5 x 23.5 cm and the catalogues typically weigh between 1.8–2.8 kg.
For the first time, all of the oil paintings owned by the 69 collections of the University and Colleges of Oxford have been published together, in two sumptuous volumes. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the huge variety of the University’s paintings, many of which are not on public display, and is a guide to both famous and little-known works from the city. Volume I contains colleges A to P while Volume II contains colleges R to Z, the University's Faculty and Departmental holdings and The Rhodes Trust.
