Somerville 140: A history of Somerville in 140 objects
To celebrate the College’s 140th anniversary, we have produced Somerville 140: 1879-2019.
The book, authored by Lizzy Emerson, tells the story of the amazing individuals – including two prime ministers, a Nobel prize-winning scientist and over 70 published authors – and remarkable history of Somerville through 140 objects. A catalogue of the rare, the everyday and the just plain curious, this beautifully illustrated work will include everything from sculpture to teapots and books to bicycle racks.
Somerville 140 will be available from October 2019 and is published by Scala. Pre-order the book now.
