Original photoengraving of Pembroke College, Oxford, by Emery Walker after E. H. New


The inscription beneath the image reads: ‘Pembroke College, Oxford, formerly Broadgates Hall, founded by King James 1st / at the cost & charges of Thomas Tesdale, esq. & Richard Wrightwick B.D., A.D. 1624 / William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke being Chancellor of the University.’

Emery Walker (1851–1933) was a British master printer, typographer, and engraver. A leading figure in the Arts & Crafts Movement, he helped to found the Kelmscott Press with William Morris. Walker was later a partner with Cobden-Sanderson in the Doves Press.

Edmund Hort New (1871–1931) worked with Ruskin and other Arts & Crafts artists, later working at Kelmscott Press. Over a period of years New created a series of prints of the Oxford colleges based on the famous bird’s-eye views engraved by David Loggan (1634–92) in his folio Oxonia illustrata (1675), but incorporating New’s own distinctive Arts & Crafts flourishes.

These prints were sold at Oxford shops in the early part of the 20th century; the remnants of a label on the reverse (see image) refer to the fine art dealers Ryman & Co, who occupied 23 High Street from 1919.
