King's College Cambridge, a personal view - By Alan Macfarlane

With Patricia McGuire & Bridget Strevens Marzo

This is a short, illustrated, book, to introduce visitors and students to one of the most famous Colleges in the world, best known for its glorious College Chapel and choir, but also for the many famous people, including John Maynard Keynes, Xu Zhimo, Alan Turing and E.M.Forster, who have been associated with it. There is a description of each part of the College, with appropriate maps showing where distinguished people lived in the past and the age of the buildings. There are also chapters on the Chapel, the Xu Zhimo stone and Chinese garden, the nature of the institution and the magical landscapes.

A Fellow of the College wrote on receiving a copy: 'It is absolutely beautiful – clear, informative and above all, a beautiful object with a genuinely hand-made feel (the illustrations are exquisite and the hand drawn maps and diagrams remind me of Wainwrights’ guides to the Lake District).
