Arthur Gray's history of Jesus College, after having been long out of print, was reissued in 1960 with an entirely new section covering the previous 100 years. This revised edition brings the history up to the end of the 1970's when the first women members were coming into residence. Jesus College itself is one of the more interesting foundations, both architecturally and historically. The book contains fascinating glimpses of the lives of some of the eminent men who have passed through Jesus College- Thomas Cranmer, Laurence Sterne, S. T. Coleridge, Steve Fairbairn, to name only four - and the college buildings themselves are illustrated by a series of excellent photographs. The book will appeal not only to members of Jesus College but also to all who are interested in social history and the traditions of university life. First Thus.
