50 Treasures FROM Winchester College  

          50 Treasurespaperback, 136 pp. £20  

 

 

 

Over six centuries since its foundation in 1382, Winchester College has accumulated thousands of historic documents, books and works of art. This beautifully-illustrated publication includes essays on 50 objects from across the school’s collections, each written by a member of the College community. Contributors include current and former pupils, dons and other staff, and members of the school’s governing body.

The book features artefacts from the early history of the College and outstanding items from its important collections of Greek antiquities, Chinese ceramics, English silver and rare books. Among the more unusual and unexpected items are a ship model made by eighteenth-century prisoners, a scrapbook from the Crimean War, and perhaps the world’s longest-running scientific experiment. An introductory essay describes how the collections were acquired and sets them in the context of the school’s history.
