A Portrait of Gonville and Caius College

£22.50

Product description

This book celebrates two anniversaries in the long history of this College. It is 660 years since its College's first foundation by Edmund Gonville in 1348 and 450 years since the second foundation by Dr John Caius in 1558.
Buildings alone do not make a College, no matter how beautiful they may be; and yet they provide a vital support for this powerful intellectual community that renews itself year after year. Caius is a living continuum of study, contemplation, enquiry and expression stretching in an unbroken line all the way back to the Middle Ages.
The book opens with a brilliant encapsulation of the story of the College's growth and development from 1348 to 2008, written by the master historian of Caius, Professor Christopher Brooke.
This is followed by a breathtaking panorama of images of Caius in the twenty-first century. Dan White shows us the College through fresh eyes. He delights in contrasting ancient traditions with irrepressible youth. He portrays a vibrant community of students, fellows, staff and benefactors, all contributing in their own way to the multi-faceted life of the College.
Dan's unforgettable images are also perfectly complemented by the photographs of College President, Professor Wei-Yao Liang, who captures the subtle beauty of the College through its many moods and seasons.
Photography by Dan White, edited by Wei-Yao Liang and Christopher Brooke.
The book is in very good condition with an unclipped dustjacket, sound binding and unmarked pages. 
The first photograph is a stock photo, the remainder are of this copy.
