Originally published as a Commentary on Agas's Plan or View of Oxford (OHS 38 - now out of print), Herbert Hurst took, for his text, the Perambulation by Leonard Hutten (written in about 1625-30), also published by the Oxford Historical Society. Hurst's volume may be read alone as a vivid yet scholarly view of Oxford in the time of Elizabeth I. Hurst criticizes and extends Hutten's account, and a fold-out plan shows the area covered by Agas's original plan. This truly historical volume is in excellent condition but shows some evidence of having been published in 1899, and is sold on the understanding that it is an unused First Edition.
