Foss, suffering personal health problems, chafing under economic constraints plus (as the war years drew on) shortages in paper, and disliking intensely the move of all the London operations to Oxford to avoid The Blitz, resigned his position in 1941, to be succeeded by Peterkin.[84]. Today, OUP reserves "Clarendon Press" as an imprint for Oxford publications of particular academic importance.[85]. The Dictionary began to appear in print in 1884, but the first edition was not completed until 1928, 13 years after Murray's death, at a cost of around £375,000. Roger Louis (D.Litt., Oxford), CBE, FBA, is Kerr Professor at the University of Texas and Honorary Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford. [19] The Almanacks have been produced annually without interruption from Fell's time to the present day. Her association with OUP seems to date from 1910, although she did not have exclusive agency for OUP's books. This is the first time material written by Murray and the early editors has been changed since they finished in 1928. He returned to Britain just in time, for on 18 October 1931, the Japanese invaded Manchuria. It suffered from the absence of any figure comparable to Fell, and its history was marked by ineffectual or fractious individuals such as the Architypographus and antiquary Thomas Hearne, and the flawed project of Baskett's first Bible, a gorgeously designed volume strewn with misprints, and known as the Vinegar Bible after a glaring typographical error in St. Luke. Eileen H. Tamura, editor Eileen H. Tamura is a professor emerita of history of education at the University of Hawai‘i–Mānoa and past president of the History of Education Society (U.S.). Oxford University Press is one of the oldest and best-known publishing houses in the world. A full variant Greek text of Scripture proved impossible, but in 1675 Oxford printed a quarto King James edition, carrying Fell's own textual changes and spellings. [83] This matched well with an increased demand for materials to support music education in British schools, a result of governmental reforms of education during the 1930s. [87] It has been noted as one of the first university presses to publish an open access journal (Nucleic Acids Research), and probably the first to introduce Hybrid open access journals, offering "optional open access" to authors to allow all readers online access to their paper without charge. management style, In the 1920s, once the Indian Branch was up and running, it became the custom for staff members going out or returning to take a tour of East and South East Asia.

[89] The OUP is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association. [18], Fell's scheme was ambitious. It is focused on scholarly and reference books, Bibles, and college and medical textbooks. Seven years later, as Publisher to the University, Frowde was using his own name as an imprint as well as 'Oxford University Press'. 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. 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. Percy Scholes's Listener's Guide to Music (originally published in 1919) was similarly brought into the new department as the first of a series of books on music appreciation for the listening public. Hodder & Stoughton opted out of this venture, but OUP went ahead and contributed to it. [80], Whatever the Music Department's growth in quantity, breadth of musical offering, and reputation amongst both musicians and the general public, the whole question of financial return came to a head in the 1930s. John Cannon, editor. This period saw consolidation in the face of the breakup of the Empire and the post-war reorganization of the Commonwealth. This work only provoked further conflict with the Stationers' Company. It furthers the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

The Maruzen company was by far the largest customer, and had a special arrangement regarding terms. However, as Sutcliffe says, Foss, a modest composer and gifted pianist, "was not particularly interested in education; he was passionately interested in music. [64] By then, OUP had moved from being a parochial printer into a wide-ranging, university-owned publishing house with a growing international presence.

The London office "existed to make money for the Clarendon Press to spend on the promotion of learning. Bibles were the major item of trade in China, unlike India where educational books topped the lists, even if Oxford's lavishly produced and expensive Bible editions were not very competitive beside cheap American ones. [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. 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. Curiously, sales through the years 1914 to 1917 were good and it was only towards the end of the war that conditions really began pinching. He himself was authorized to invest money up to a limit in the business but was prevented from doing so by family troubles. 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. Oxford became a Royalist stronghold during the conflict, and many printers in the city concentrated on producing political pamphlets or sermons. 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. In 1914, Europe was plunged into turmoil. [citation needed] The Press had problems with Henzell, who were irregular with correspondence. N. Graydon (first name unknown) was the first such traveller in 1907, and again in 1908 when he represented OUP exclusively in India, the Straits and the Far East. Bombay was the nodal point for distribution to the Africas and onward sale to Australasia, and people who trained at the three major depots moved later on to pioneer branches in Africa and South East Asia.[66]. [90], Publishing arm of the University of Oxford, "OUP" redirects here. 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. Early editions featured symbolic views of Oxford, but in 1766 these gave way to realistic studies of the city or university. With the end of the war Milford's place was taken by Geoffrey Cumberlege. Milford began putting in practice a number of initiatives, including the foundations of most of the Press's global branches. In any event, the result was Nicholas Hawksmoor's beautiful but impractical structure beside the Sheldonian in Broad Street. OUP's interaction with this area was part of their mission to India, since many of their travellers took in East and South East Asia on their way out to or back from India. In disgust, Blackstone forced the university to confront its responsibilities by publishing a lengthy letter he had written to Huddesford's successor, Thomas Randolph in May 1757. Edmund Blunden had been briefly at the University of Tokyo and put the Press in touch with the university booksellers, Fukumoto Stroin. Both were Oxford men who knew the system inside out, and the close collaboration with which they worked was a function of their shared background and worldview.

Perhaps most importantly, Foss seemed to have a knack for finding new composers of what he regarded as distinctively English music, which had broad appeal to the public. His books include The Oxford Illustrated History of the British Monarchy and The Blackwell Dictionary of Historians. Price, trying in his own way to modernize the Press against the resistance of its own historical inertia, had become overworked and by 1883 was so exhausted as to want to retire.

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 North American branch grew in sales between 1928 and 1936, eventually becoming one of the leading university presses in the United States. Since 2001, Oxford University Press has financially supported the Clarendon bursary, a University of Oxford graduate scholarship scheme.

Besides plans for academic and religious works, in 1674 he began to print a broadsheet calendar, known as the Oxford Almanack. In 1912, he arrived again in Bombay, now known as Mumbai. 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. 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. Both prepared editions at the invitation of the Greek scholar Thomas Gaisford, who served as a Delegate for 50 years.

The last man known as 'Publisher to the University' was John Gilbert Newton Brown, known to his colleagues as 'Bruno'. Subsequently, these became standard in print shops worldwide. [citation needed]. Rather than bringing relief from shortages, the 1920s saw skyrocketing prices of both materials and labour. The first printer associated with Oxford University was Theoderic Rood. [62] In addition, he suggested the idea for the Clarendon Press Institute, a social club for staff in Walton Street. In contrast, the Music Department's emphasis on music for performance was comparatively long-term and continuing, particularly as income from recurring broadcasts or recordings came in, and as it continued to build its relationships with new and upcoming musicians. learned publishing, Wm. [45] Major new lines of work began. Occasionally an author, too, would be reported missing or dead, as well as staff who were now scattered over the battlefields of the globe. Nevertheless, Frowde was especially careful to see that all commission books he published met with the Delegates' approval. University of Texas at Austin. It also covers the legacy of the classical world and its interpretation and influence in subsequent centuries. [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 worked here until 1830, with its operations split into the so-called Learned Side and Bible Side in different wings of the building.[26]. Princeton University Press editors' welcome proposals for new books in a wide range of disciplines. 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. The book also assesses the great variety of publications on the Press's list, and suggests how these titles contributed to the intellectual and cultural significance of OUP as a publisher and as the representative of an educational institution. This is the third volume charting the history of Oxford University Press. Cobb mandated Henzell & Co. of Shanghai (which seems to have been run by a professor) to represent OUP in that city.

He was replaced by Geoffrey Cumberlege and Noel Carrington. In 1921, Milford hired Hubert J. Foss, originally as an assistant to Educational Manager V. H. Collins. There he rented an office in the dockside area and set up the first overseas Branch. 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. The London blitz this time was much more intense and the London Business was shifted temporarily to Oxford. Wm. Gell himself was a patrician who was unhappy with his work, where he saw himself as catering to the taste of "one class: the lower middle",[citation needed] and he grasped at the chance of working with the kind of texts and readerships OUP attracted. A.H. Cobb replaced him in 1909, and in 1910 Cobb functioned as a travelling manager semi-permanently stationed in India. Some royal assent was obtained, since the printer Joseph Barnes began work, and a decree of Star Chamber noted the legal existence of a press at "the universitie of Oxforde" in 1586. The chancellor, Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, pleaded Oxford's case. In fact, most of the money came from Oxford's new Bible printer John Baskett—and the Vice-Chancellor William Delaune defaulted with much of the proceeds from Clarendon's work. She looked after the affairs of the Press very capably and occasionally sent Milford boxes of complimentary cigars. 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. Cannan set out to obtain it. 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. OUP Southern Africa is now one of the three biggest educational publishers in South Africa, and focuses its attention on publishing textbooks, dictionaries, atlases and supplementary material for schools, and textbooks for universities. 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. Then, other than general support, Milford left Foss largely to his own devices.[77]. One important acquisition did come from Japan, however: A. S. Hornby's Advanced Learner's Dictionary. The delegates then served him with a notice of termination of service that violated his contract. To secure copyright in both territories publishers had to arrange for simultaneous publication, an endless logistical headache in this age of steamships. 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. Many of the staff including two of the pioneers of the Indian branch were killed in action. 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.

He bought the Anglo-French Music Company and all its facilities, connections, and resources. Foss responded with incredible energy. [citation needed] That replacement was to be Miss M. Verne McNeely, a redoubtable lady who was a member of the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, and also ran a bookshop. sales and profits, They were long-serving classicists, presiding over a learned business that printed 5 or 10 titles each year, such as Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon (1843), and they displayed little or no desire to expand its trade. Mark D. Hersey Stephen Brain. You could not be signed in, please check and try again. 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. [20], Following the start of this work, Fell drew up the first formal programme for the university's printing. ... Senior Editor (History) Hannah Paul Associate Editor (Economics & Political Science) ... 6 Oxford Street, Woodstock Oxfordshire, OX20 1TR United Kingdom Phone: +44 1993 814500 [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.

PRINTED FROM OXFORD SCHOLARSHIP ONLINE ( Buildings were constructed from plans drawn up by Daniel Robertson and Edward Blore, and the Press moved into them in 1830. 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. 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. Prior publication in any one territory forfeited copyright protection in the other.[72]. [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. The Depression of 1929 dried profits from the Americas to a trickle, and India became 'the one bright spot' in an otherwise dismal picture. During his time, the growing Press established distributors in London, and employed the bookseller Joseph Parker in Turl Street for the same purposes in Oxford. 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. [23], Yate and Jenkins predeceased Fell, leaving him with no obvious heir to oversee the print shop. 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. In tandem with institutions like the British Council, OUP began to reposition itself in the education market. Moves into international markets led to OUP opening its own offices outside the United Kingdom, beginning with New York City in 1896. The label "Clarendon Press" took on a new meaning when OUP began publishing books through its London office in the early 20th century. 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.

The Press's experience of World War II was similar to World War I except that Milford was now close to retirement and 'hated to see the young men go'. 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. This section will feature unusual and surprising contributions that do not fit our usual article format. Changes to educational systems, the British and international book trade, the political landscape, and the economy affected different parts of the Press in varying ways, as did the management by the Press's successive Secretaries, printers, publishers, editors, and branch managers. [6] As a result, the last hundred years has seen Oxford publish further English and bilingual dictionaries, children's books, school textbooks, music, journals, the World's Classics series, and a range of English language teaching texts. The name continued to be used when OUP moved to its present site in Oxford in 1830. Despite his education at Balliol and a background in London publishing, Gell found the operations of the Press incomprehensible. Graydon on his first trip in 1907 had travelled the 'Straits Settlements' (largely the Federated Malay States and Singapore), China, and Japan, but was not able to do much. Robert Crowcroft, editor. 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. Secretary to the Delegates, Charles Cannan, who had been instrumental in Gell's removal, succeeded Gell in 1898, and Humphrey S. Milford, his younger colleague, effectively succeeded Frowde in 1907. 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. 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. Frowde dealt with most of the logistics for books carrying the OUP imprint, including handling authors, binding, dispatching, and advertising, and only editorial work and the printing itself were carried out at or supervised from Oxford. There he became friendly with Edward Thompson who involved him in the abortive scheme to produce the 'Oxford Book of Bengali Verse'. Oxford lore maintained its construction was funded by proceeds from his book The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England (1702–04). "[24] Fell's main trustee was the Delegate Henry Aldrich, Dean of Christ Church, who took a keen interest in the decorative work of Oxford's books. In their view the Press was, and always would be, an association of scholars. 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. However, he was persuaded not to file suit and to go quietly. Robert Crowcroft is a lecturer in Contemporary History at the University of Edinburgh. In India, the Branch depots in Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta were imposing establishments with sizable stock inventories, for the Presidencies themselves were large markets, and the educational representatives there dealt mostly with upcountry trade. He died in 1686. The official journal of American Society for Environmental History and Forest History Society. organizational structure, However, he came under increasing pressure from the Delegates in Oxford concerning the continued flow of expenditures from what seemed to them an unprofitable venture. Frowde had no doubt that the Press's business in London could be very largely increased and was appointed on contract with a commission on sales. To meet these demands, OUP needed much more revenue. Oxford University Press (OUP) welcomes submissions of book proposals in the core areas in which we publish. Skilled in Editing, Manuscript reviewing, Translating, Copywriting, Web Content Writing, Journals, and Literature. Using the provisions of the Great Charter, Fell persuaded Oxford to refuse any further payments from the Stationers and drew all printers working for the university onto one set of premises. [52] Simply put, without abandoning its traditions or quality of work, Price began to turn OUP into an alert, modern publisher. A fiftieth anniversary pamphlet published by the Music Department in 1973 says that OUP had "no knowledge of the music trade, no representative to sell to music shops, and—it seems—no awareness that sheet music was in any way a different commodity from books. 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. "[81] Further, OUP treated its book publications as short-term projects: any books that did not sell within a few years of publication were written off (to show as unplanned or hidden income if in fact they sold thereafter). Appointed in 1868, Price had already recommended to the university that the Press needed an efficient executive officer to exercise "vigilant superintendence" of the business, including its dealings with Alexander Macmillan, who became the publisher for Oxford's printing in 1863 and in 1866 helped Price to create the Clarendon Press series of cheap, elementary school books – perhaps the first time that … 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.
