Printed for J. Cooke, near the Clarendon Printing-House.

- [Price Three Shillings.]. "

See ! Oxford lifts her Head sublime,
Majestic in the Moss of Time;
Nor wants there Græcia's better Party
'Mid the proud Piles of antient Art;
Nor decent Doric to dispense
New Charms ʼmid old Magnificence ;
And here and there foft Corinth weaves
Her dædal Coronet of Leaves ;
While, as with rival Pride, her Tow’rs invade the Sky.

Warton's Ode.

Collingwood and Co. Oxford.
