Notes The Oxford Almanack for 1762, depicting the new facade of Queen's college, which had been recently completed, with the men responsible for the rebuilding project in the foreground. To the left, Sir Joseph Williamson and Dr Lancaster examine the architectural plans for the rebuilding project. Beside them, Dr Halton and Bishop Barlow likewise examine plans for the library. To the right of the scene, John Michel stands in the courtyard, indicating the position for the East Range of the quadrangle that was built with his bequest. Below the scene, the title for the calendar is bordered by a pair of lists, representing the succession of the Royal line from William the Conqueror to the left, and the Officers of the University for 1762 to the right. The calendar itself has been trimmed off.
