From James Ryman's Illustrations of Oxford.
George Hollis was a well-known artist and engraver who worked in Oxford in the first half of the nineteenth century. Many of his engravings were published by James Ryman, a printseller on the High Street, Oxford, active between 1836 and 1865. Hollis's views were published separately from 1819 before being bound as a volume with descriptive text in 1839. 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.
