A History of Merton College; G. H. Martin

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not really reviewable: standard history of a (very old) college, complete with "here's how many books we had in the library". If you don't understand ecclesiastic history, you'll be confused by the early years (the first 500 or so). Why did I have this? It was accidentally left in a box of books I was given; the owner is a graduate of Merton. Knowing the college, I thought I'd read... ended up skimming.

For all the boring bits, it was interesting to see how the school and university developed.
