Foss's presence, and his knowledge, ability, enthusiasm, and imagination may well have been the catalyst bringing hitherto unconnected activities together in Milford's mind, as another new venture similar to the establishment of the overseas branches. The Oxford History of the Ancient Near East offers a comprehensive and fully illustrated survey of the history of Egypt and Western Asia (the Levant, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Iran) in five volumes, from the emergence of complex states to the conquests of Alexander the Great. One important acquisition did come from Japan, however: A. S. Hornby's Advanced Learner's Dictionary. [7] With the advent of computer technology and increasingly harsh trading conditions, the Press's printing house at Oxford was closed in 1989, and its former paper mill at Wolvercote was demolished in 2004. Susan Ferber is an executive editor for American and world history at Oxford University Press in New York, where she has worked since 1997. In 1920, Noel Carrington went to Calcutta to set up a proper branch. The Oxford University Press, established in 1478, is one of the largest and most prestigious university publishers in … There he became friendly with Edward Thompson who involved him in the abortive scheme to produce the 'Oxford Book of Bengali Verse'. An individual user may print out a PDF of a single chapter of a monograph in OSO for personal use. E. V. Rieu could not longer delay his callup and was drafted in 1917, the management then being under his wife Nellie Rieu, a former editor for the Athenaeum 'with the assistance of her two British babies.' Lengthy negotiations led to a formal contract. It was there to serve the vast educational market created by the rapidly expanding school and college network in British India. [citation needed] Though Frowde was by no means an Oxford man and had no social pretensions of being one, he was a sound businessman who was able to strike the magic balance between caution and enterprise. [89] The OUP is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association. Oxford University Press is a department of University of Oxford. Other printing during this period included Richard Allestree's contemplative texts, and Thomas Hanmer's six-volume edition of Shakespeare, (1743–44). Cobb then proposed to Milford that the Press join a combination of firms to send commercial travellers around South America, to which Milford in principle agreed. He was more or less singlehandedly responsible for setting up the American Branch as well as depots in Edinburgh, Toronto, and Melbourne. [1][2][3] It is a department of the University of Oxford and is governed by a group of 15 academics appointed by the vice-chancellor known as the delegates of the press. The Maruzen company was by far the largest customer, and had a special arrangement regarding terms. Gell's idea of "efficiency" appeared to violate that culture, although subsequently a very similar programme of reform was put into practice from the inside. She has edited many first books, as well as the work of senior scholars. The Stationers' Company was deeply alarmed by the threat to its trade and lost little time in establishing a "Covenant of Forbearance" with Oxford. The Press now entered an era of enormous change. Dating from 1675, this document envisaged hundreds of works, including the Bible in Greek, editions of the Coptic Gospels and works of the Church Fathers, texts in Arabic and Syriac, comprehensive editions of classical philosophy, poetry, and mathematics, a wide range of medieval scholarship, and also "a history of insects, more perfect than any yet Extant. management style, The chancellor, Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, pleaded Oxford's case. He died in 1686. Wm. The business was rescued by the intervention of a single Delegate, William Blackstone. His fears were borne out. He is General Editor of the new multi-volume History of Oxford University Press. (c) Copyright Oxford University Press, 2021. learned publishing, Wm. Robert Crowcroft, editor. In their view the Press was, and always would be, an association of scholars. Editors. With the end of the war Milford's place was taken by Geoffrey Cumberlege. In 1911, E. V. Rieu went out to East Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, had several adventures in China and Russia, then came south to India and spent most of the year meeting educationists and officials all over India. The Depression of 1929 dried profits from the Americas to a trickle, and India became 'the one bright spot' in an otherwise dismal picture. It is the largest university press in the world, and the second oldest after Cambridge University Press. This business was set up in the cellars of the new Sheldonian Theatre, where Fell installed printing presses in 1668, making it the university's first central print shop. [64] By then, OUP had moved from being a parochial printer into a wide-ranging, university-owned publishing house with a growing international presence. Besides establishing the system of Delegates, he created the wide-ranging supervisory post of "Architypographus": an academic who would have responsibility for every function of the business, from print shop management to proofreading. Prior to the twentieth century, the Press at Oxford had occasionally printed a piece of music or a book relating to musicology. [54] Both figures were wildly optimistic. This is the third volume charting the history of Oxford University Press. In December 1909 Cobb returned and rendered his accounts for his Asia trip that year. Secretary to the Delegates, You could not be signed in, please check and try again. At no period in its history has the Oxford English Dictionary been profitable commercially for Oxford University Press. Conventional accounts often conceive the genesis of capitalism in Europe within the conjunctures of agricultural, commercial, and industrial revolutions. Displays include a 19th-century printing press, the OUP buildings, and the printing and history of the Oxford Almanack, Alice in Wonderland and the Oxford English Dictionary. Roger Louis, editor His efforts were helped by the efficiency of the print shop. Oxford would establish it on university property, govern its operations, employ its staff, determine its printed work, and benefit from its proceeds. This is the third volume charting the history of Oxford University Press. Milford rapidly teamed up with J. E. Hodder Williams of Hodder and Stoughton, setting up what was known as the Joint Account for the issue of a wide range of books in education, science, medicine and also fiction. Most of the time Frowde did whatever he could within the mandate given him by the Delegates. [63] Finally, Hart's general interest in printing led to him cataloguing the "Fell Types", then using them in a series of Tudor and Stuart facsimile volumes for the Press, before ill health led to his death in 1915. Although there had been plenty of criticism of them, the general feeling was that Max Müller had done India a favour by popularising ancient Asian (Persian, Arabic, Indian and Sinic) philosophy in the West. Many of the staff including two of the pioneers of the Indian branch were killed in action. PRINTED FROM OXFORD SCHOLARSHIP ONLINE (oxford.universitypressscholarship.com). The Delegates began to work around him, and the university finally dismissed Gell in 1897. Other business was routed through H. L. Griffiths, a professional publishers' representative based in Sannomiya, Kobe. The period it covers is the twentieth century. Hence his interest in overseas sales, for by the 1880s and 1890s there was money to be made in India, while the European book market was in the doldrums. The post was more an ideal than a workable reality, but it survived (mostly as a sinecure) in the loosely structured Press until the 18th century. school books, [citation needed], Price quickly primed Frowde for the imminent publication jointly with Cambridge University Press of the Revised Version of the Bible, which promised to be a 'bestseller' on a scale that would require the employment of all the Press's resources to keep up with the demand. Its very first original publication, The Life of Sir William Osler, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1926. Board of Delegates, [35], At this time, Thomas Combe joined the Press and became the university's Printer until his death in 1872. [23], Yate and Jenkins predeceased Fell, leaving him with no obvious heir to oversee the print shop. Subsequently, it took over marketing of all books of its parent from Macmillan. An acutely gifted classicist, he came to the head of a business that was successful in traditional terms but now moved into uncharted terrain. Under this, the Stationers paid an annual rent for the university not to exercise its full printing rights – money Oxford used to purchase new printing equipment for smaller purposes. Early editions featured symbolic views of Oxford, but in 1766 these gave way to realistic studies of the city or university. Frowde regularly remitted money back to Oxford, but he privately felt that the business was undercapitalized and would pretty soon become a serious drain on the university's resources unless put on a sound commercial footing. sales and profits, In 1830, it was still a joint-stock printing business in an academic backwater, offering learned works to a relatively small readership of scholars and clerics. [note 1] The Press did not cease to search out and publish new musicians and their music, but the tenor of the business had changed. Combe was a better business man than most Delegates, but still no innovator: he failed to grasp the huge commercial potential of India paper, which grew into one of Oxford's most profitable trade secrets in later years. In any event, the result was Nicholas Hawksmoor's beautiful but impractical structure beside the Sheldonian in Broad Street. Cobb obtained the services of a man called Steer (first name unknown) to travel through Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and possibly other countries as well, with Cobb to be responsible for Steer. The same year saw him enter into a so-called "joint venture" with Hodder & Stoughton to help with the publication of children's literature and medical books. This was not an uncommon arrangement for scholarly or antiquarian presses. The emphasis of this volume is on the origins and establishment of literary conventions concerning the past; on seeing different models of historical inquiry and representation emerge from within their own social, literary, and intellectual contexts. Gell was making a name for himself at the publishing firm of Cassell, Petter and Galpin, a firm regarded as scandalously commercial by the delegates. In retaliation, Fell leased the university's Bible printing to three rogue Stationers, Moses Pitt, Peter Parker, and Thomas Guy, whose sharp commercial instincts proved vital to fomenting Oxford's Bible trade. To give one example, in 1875, the Delegates approved the series Sacred Books of the East under the editorship of Friedrich Max Müller, bringing a vast range of religious thought to a wider readership. There he rented an office in the dockside area and set up the first overseas Branch. Foss responded with incredible energy. Milford observed, 'we ought to do much more in China than we are doing' and authorized Cobb in 1910 to find a replacement for Henzell as their representative to the educational authorities. During this time, Oxford University Press surpassed all other university presses in its size, range of publications, and geographic reach, competing with the largest London and international publishing firms. DORA, the Defence of the Realm Act, required the surrender of all nonessential metal for the manufacture of armaments, and many valuable electrotype plates were melted down by government order. [11] Laud also obtained the "privilege" from the Crown of printing the King James or Authorized Version of Scripture at Oxford. Mark D. Hersey Stephen Brain. Parker also came to hold shares in the Press itself.[31]. Here, Blackstone characterized the Press as an inbred institution that had given up all pretence of serving scholarship, "languishing in a lazy obscurity … a nest of imposing mechanics." The university became involved in the print trade around 1480, and grew into a major printer of Bibles, prayer books, and scholarly works. Forty-eight shares were issued, with the university holding a controlling interest. This work only provoked further conflict with the Stationers' Company. [56] The Assistant Secretary, Charles Cannan, took over with little fuss and even less affection for his predecessor: "Gell was always here, but I cannot make out what he did.

Prior publication in any one territory forfeited copyright protection in the other.[72]. [19] The Almanacks have been produced annually without interruption from Fell's time to the present day. [citation needed] The Press had problems with Henzell, who were irregular with correspondence. During this time, Oxford University Press surpassed all other university presses in its size, range of publications, and geographic reach, competing with the largest London and international publishing firms. Milford took responsibility for overseas trade almost at once, and by 1906 he was making plans to send a traveller to India and the Far East jointly with Hodder and Stoughton. Experienced Editor & translator with a demonstrated history of working in the publishing industry. The series plan was expanded by adding the similarly inexpensive but high-quality "Oxford Church Music" and "Tudor Church Music" (taken over from the Carnegie UK Trust); all these series continue today. This is the first time material written by Murray and the early editors has been changed since they finished in 1928. As a result, his will left the partners' stock and lease in trust to Oxford University, and charged them with keeping together "my founding Materialls of the Press. Milford began putting in practice a number of initiatives, including the foundations of most of the Press's global branches. Despite violent opposition from some printers in the Sheldonian, this ended the friction between Oxford and the Stationers, and marked the effective start of a stable university printing business. Such musical publishing enterprises, however, were rare: "In nineteenth-century Oxford the idea that music might in any sense be educational would not have been entertained",[74] and few of the Delegates or former Publishers were themselves musical or had extensive music backgrounds. Oxford University Press (OUP) welcomes submissions of book proposals in the core areas in which we publish. It also covers the legacy of the classical world and its interpretation and influence in subsequent centuries. He worked to establish "the largest possible list in the shortest possible time",[78] adding titles at the rate of over 200 a year; eight years later there were 1750 titles in the catalogue. The story of Oxford University Press spans five centuries of printing and publishing. Some outstanding mathematical and Orientalist works emerged at this time—notably, texts edited by Edward Pococke, the Regius Professor of Hebrew—but no university press on Laud's model was possible before the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660. He hired Norman Peterkin, a moderately well-known musician, as full-time sales manager for music. Cannan set out to obtain it. To cure this disgraceful state of affairs, Blackstone called for sweeping reforms that would firmly set out the Delegates' powers and obligations, officially record their deliberations and accounting, and put the print shop on an efficient footing. [25], In 1713, Aldrich also oversaw the Press moving to the Clarendon Building. They are headed by the secretary to the delegates, who serves as OUP's chief executive and as its major representative on other university bodies. This series, under the general editorship of W. G. Whittaker, was OUP's first commitment to the publishing of music for performance, rather than in book form or for study. Its territory includes Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and Namibia, as well as South Africa, the biggest market of the five. [45] Major new lines of work began. Oxford lore maintained its construction was funded by proceeds from his book The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England (1702–04). [43] The university bought back shares as their holders retired or died. It is our mission to further the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide. In 1905, when applying for a pension, he wrote to J. R. Magrath, the then Vice Chancellor, that during the seven years when he had served as manager of the Bible Warehouse the sales of the London Business had averaged about £20,000 and the profits £1,887 per year. Few orders did in fact come out of the trip, and when Steer's box of samples returned, the London office found that they had not been opened further down than the second layer. Cannan was known for terrifying silences, and Milford had an uncanny ability, testified to by Amen House employees, to 'disappear' in a room rather like a Cheshire cat, from which obscurity he would suddenly address his subordinates and make them jump. The Chinese-language teaching titles are published with the brand Keys Press (啟思出版社). The result of this ambitious undertaking will be a completely revitalized Oxford English Dictionary. By 1865 the Delegacy had ceased to be 'perpetual,' and evolved into five perpetual and five junior posts filled by appointment from the university, with the Vice Chancellor a Delegate ex officio: a hothouse for factionalism that Price deftly tended and controlled. Offered to Oxford by James Murray and the Philological Society, the "New English Dictionary" was a grand academic and patriotic undertaking. OUP as Oxford Journals has also been a major publisher of academic journals, both in the sciences and the humanities; as of 2016[update] it publishes over 200 journals on behalf of learned societies around the world. The first printer associated with Oxford University was Theoderic Rood. Steer returned before he had covered more than half of his itinerary, and on returning failed to have his customs payments refunded, with the result that a hefty sum of £210 was lost to the Press. Sir William Henry Hadow's multi-volume Oxford History of Music had appeared between 1901 and 1905. OUP came to be known as "(The) Clarendon Press" when printing moved from the Sheldonian Theatre to the Clarendon Building in Broad Street in 1713. Early copyright law had begun to undercut the Stationers, and the university took pains to lease out its Bible work to experienced printers. This is the third volume charting the history of Oxford University Press. [51] The Press was now owned wholly by the university, with its own paper mill, print shop, bindery, and warehouse. A.H. Cobb replaced him in 1909, and in 1910 Cobb functioned as a travelling manager semi-permanently stationed in India. Noel was the brother of Dora Carrington, the artist, and even got her to illustrate his Stories Retold edition of Don Quixote for the Indian market. Seven years later, as Publisher to the University, Frowde was using his own name as an imprint as well as 'Oxford University Press'. This concluding volume in The Oxford History of Historical Writing covers a very small period in comparison with some of its companions: barely two‐thirds of a century. A business associate of William Caxton, Rood seems to have brought his own wooden printing press to Oxford from Cologne as a speculative venture, and to have worked in the city between around 1480 and 1483. Fell regarded Laud as a martyr, and was determined to honour his vision of the Press. At UC Press, we're excited to work with scholars and thinkers who deepen our knowledge of the world and who aim to make a difference on critical issues facing the country and the world. Horace Hart was appointed as Controller of the Press at the same time as Gell, but proved far more effective than the Secretary. Roger Louis (D.Litt., Oxford), CBE, FBA, is Kerr Professor at the University of Texas and Honorary Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford. [36] Even so, Combe earned a fortune through his shares in the business and the acquisition and renovation of the bankrupt paper mill at Wolvercote. They were products of a university press that had come to embody increasing muddle, decay, and corrupt practice, and relied increasingly on leasing of its Bible and prayer book work to survive. History. This style persisted till recent times, with two kinds of imprints emanating from the Press's London offices. This section will feature unusual and surprising contributions that do not fit our usual article format. Steer's trip was a disaster, and Milford remarked gloomily that it 'bid fair to be the most costly and least productive on record' of all traveller's trips. To meet these demands, OUP needed much more revenue. Both prepared editions at the invitation of the Greek scholar Thomas Gaisford, who served as a Delegate for 50 years. To that end, he petitioned Charles I for rights that would enable Oxford to compete with the Stationers' Company and the King's Printer, and obtained a succession of royal grants to aid it. [17] Finally, defying the Stationers' demands, Fell personally leased the right to print from the university in 1672, in partnership with Thomas Yate, Principal of Brasenose, and Sir Leoline Jenkins, Principal of Jesus College. The Press had ended its relationship with Parker's in 1863 and in 1870 bought a small London bindery for some Bible work. Nikola Biller-Andorno, editor Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine, University of Zurich, Switzerland. And in 1923 he established as a separate division the Music Department, with its own offices in Amen House and with Foss as first Musical Editor. [60] Given the financial health of the Press, Cannan ceased to regard scholarly books or even the Dictionary as impossible liabilities. [71] The copyright situation at the time, subsequent to the Chace Act of 1891, was such that American publishers could publish such books with impunity although they were considered contraband in all British territories. The American National Biography (ANB) is a 24-volume biographical encyclopedia set that contains about 17,400 entries and 20 million words, first published in 1999 by Oxford University Press under the auspices of the American Council of Learned Societies.A 400-entry supplement appeared in 2002. He timed Gell's appointment to coincide with both the Long Vacation (from June to September) and the death of Mark Pattison, so potential opposition was prevented from attending the crucial meetings. In the year of the department's establishment, Foss began a series of inexpensive but well edited and printed choral pieces under the series title "Oxford Choral Songs". [18], Fell's scheme was ambitious. [14], Laud's plans, however, hit terrible obstacles, both personal and political. [37] Combe's wealth also extended to becoming the first patron of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and he and his wife Martha bought most of the group's early work, including The Light of the World by William Holman Hunt. Indeed, Frowde knew within a few weeks of Milford's entering the London office in [1904] that he would be replaced. In spite of disruptions caused by war, it won a crucial contract to print textbooks for the Central Provinces in 1915 and this helped to stabilize its fortunes in this difficult phase. The Press was obliged to disburse 80 percent of the value of the books he had carried as 'incidental expenses', so even if they had got substantial orders they would still have made a loss. Milford, however, always treated Frowde with courtesy, and Frowde remained in an advisory capacity till 1913. By 1905, under his management as Publisher, the sales had risen to upwards of £200,000 per year and the profits in that 29 years of service averaged £8,242 per year. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece and Rome offers a comprehensive overview of the major cultures of the classical Mediterranean world—Greek, Hellenistic, and Roman—from the Bronze Age to the fifth century CE. In addition, Foss worked to secure OUP's rights not only to music publication and live performance, but the "mechanical" rights to recording and broadcast. Moves into international markets led to OUP opening its own offices outside the United Kingdom, beginning with New York City in 1896. Hodder & Stoughton opted out of this venture, but OUP went ahead and contributed to it. Skilled in Editing, Manuscript reviewing, Translating, Copywriting, Web Content Writing, Journals, and Literature. The name continued to be used when OUP moved to its present site in Oxford in 1830. In 1912, he arrived again in Bombay, now known as Mumbai. Frederick F. Wherry, editor Frederick F. Wherry is Professor of Sociology at Princeton University and Director of the Dignity and Debt Network. University of Texas at Austin. Occasionally an author, too, would be reported missing or dead, as well as staff who were now scattered over the battlefields of the globe. Quality of production remained important, maintained by the traditions of the Printing House and the paper mill, although cheaper books began to appear more frequently on the Press list, particularly under the auspices of the international branches which published increasing numbers of books for their local markets. It had also published the Yattendon Hymnal in 1899 and, more significantly, the first edition of The English Hymnal in 1906, under the editorship of Percy Dearmer and the then largely unknown Ralph Vaughan Williams.
