Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press had its origins in the information technology revolution of the late fifteenth century, which began with the invention of printing from movable type. The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, only two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England.

Despite this early start, the printing industry in Oxford developed in a somewhat haphazard fashion over the next century. It consisted of a number of short-lived private businesses, some patronized by the University. But in 1586 the University itself obtained a decree from the Star Chamber confirming its privilege to print books. This was further enhanced in the Great Charter secured by Archbishop Laud from King Charles I, which entitled the University to print 'all manner of books'.

The University established its right to print the King James Authorized Version of the Bible in the seventeenth century. This Bible Privilege formed the basis of a profitable business throughout the next two centuries and was the spur to OUP's expansion. A Bible warehouse was set up in London, which later grew into a major publisher of books with educational or cultural content aimed at the general reader. OUP then began to expand internationally, starting with the opening of an American office in 1896.

Oxford's traditions of religious and academic publication were followed in New York. The first book published by the American office was the Scofield Reference Bible in 1909. After it came The Life of Sir William Osler, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1926. Six more Pulitzers, several National Book Awards, and over a dozen Bancroft Prizes in American history have followed since.

Since 1896, the business has changed considerably, with the growth and evolution of schools' publishing, particularly in the Branches; the introduction of English Language Teaching, Music, Journals, and Trade and General publishing; and the use of new technologies.

Recensie(s)

The running headings at the top of the page enable readers to tell easily which Schedule to an Act they are looking at - this is what marks out the Blackstone series from its competitors. * Nigel Furey, Teaching Fellow, University of Bristol * With their reputation for accuracy and expertly-selected legislation, the Blackstone's Statutes have been well-received by students for decades. * Chris Bevan, Assistant Professor in Property Law, University of Nottingham * As all the books in the Blackstone's Series take a similar approach to layout and structure I find it easy to locate the document I need, whichever area of law I'm studying. * Iliyana Dimitrova, Diploma in Professional Legal Studies student at the University of Edinburgh * The Blackstone's series, with their unannotated content, are an excellent resource for students during their exams. * Colin Moore, Associate Lecturer, Kent Law School * With an excellent selection of statutes and a clean, accessible layout, Blackstone's have long been the go-to series for statute books. * Lee Roach, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Portsmouth *
