A transcript of part of Antony Wood's History of the City of Oxford, containing the four Wards, nearly all the Suburbs, etc. In Clark's edition of the History, vol. i (1889), the parts here transcribed occupy pp. 64-231, 279-383, 563-66, 510-12.

At fol. 208 are three plans of parts of Oxford showing the position of the old halls and other buildings, which with some other notes (see fol. 146, etc.) seem to be in the hand of Edward Steele.
