An unusual and scarce view of the first quadrangle at Queens College. The scene looks back at the clock tower, seen left of centre. In the foreground figures are seen in the quad, with many in academic garb.
Joseph Fisher (1795-1890) was a British engraver and printmaker. Born in Oxford, the majority of his engravings are topographical, including a large series of views for Slatter's The Oxford University and City Guide. In 1845 he became Keeper of the University Galleries after the completion of Cockerell's building on Beaumont St, now the Ashmolean Museum.
Nathaniel Whittock (1791-1860) was lithographer to the University of Oxford. He was born in Oxford but moved to London in 1828. His nephew, Henry Hyde, was also an engraver.
Condition: Some spots of foxing and surface dirt to sheet. Some minor creasing to sheet edges.
