Oxford is the oldest educational establishment in Europe, with records showing that students were there as far back as the 11th century. Here we have a design based on a woodcut from a manual on life in 16th century Oxford. We can see the tutor (with birch to hand) sitting at his desk with the students holding books beneath. The design incorporates a quote from a Shakespeare play, 'The Taming of The Shrew' Act I, Scene II where Gremio says “O! This learning, what a thing it is!” This makes a perfect gift for undergraduates and graduates, also for those in any form of study, teachers and lecturers past and present everywhere.
