Founded by William of Wykeham in the late 14th century, Winchester College houses an outstanding collection of medieval manuscripts, books, old maps, paintings and artefacts as diverse as a cast of the Parthenon frieze and a former science master’s pitch flow experiment. After a substantial introductory history, this volume provides detailed commentary on 50 items, including a Ming dynasty meiping, CRW Nevinson’s Twilight (1916), and first editions of Newton’s Principia, Hooke’s Micrographia and the King James Bible.
