George Hollis was a well-known artist and engraver who worked in Oxford in the first half of the nineteenth century, many of whose engravings were published by James Ryman, a printseller in the High Street. Ryman's illustrations of Oxford is a comparatively rare work with some uncommon views of the colleges to which celebrated artists like T. S. Boys, Frederick Nash and J. S. Prout made relevant contributions.
John Buckler (1770 –1851) was an outstanding architectural draughtsman and Bailiff for Magdalen College's Southwark Estate for sixty years, whose views in Oxford, especially Magdalen College, rank amongst the finest ever produced.
