Two guides to Glastonbury and Oxford with strong Oxford provenance. Bound in polished calf, raised spine bands with a morocco label, rubbed to edges and extremities. Bookplate of 'James Elwin Millard D.D.' to front pastedown (Millard was appointed Dean of Divinity at Magdalen College, Oxford in 1863). Both text are uncommon, particularly the Glastonbury guide which is a Bristol printing for a Glastonbury stationer. Thomas Wharton's humorous Oxford guide has lively woodcut illustrations of Oxford punishments and a group of antiquaries 'overtaken in liquor'.
