Quite often, I'm amazed at how old Oxford University is. My College (St Edmund Hall, aka Teddy Hall) dates back to the 13th Century and some of its oldest buildings date from the 12th and 17th centuries.
Last week, I took a short
tour visit to the Old Library of my College to see the 1st edition of Leviathan, pubished in 1651 by Thomas Hobbes. My Social Scientists readers know how special this book is and you can probably imagine how I felt like a kid in a candy store!
ps. I thank the dedicated librarians at Teddy Hall who were very kind to receive me in their 'office' to talk about their work.
