The visitor to Oxford often asks—“Where is the University?” The proper answer is: “The University is everywhere,” for the colleges are all parts of it. But if a distinction must be made, and some buildings must be shown which are especially “University Buildings,” then it is undoubtedly in the Square of which this picture shows one side, that they must be found. Immediately on the right is the Bodleian Library, the domed building in the centre is the Radcliffe Library, and in the background rises the spire of St. Mary’s.” (p. 15)
