Clarendon Building, Oxford | Tourope

The Clarendon building was built in 1712 to house the Oxford University Press, which had previously been occupying a large room over the ceiling of the Sheldonian Theatre. It is now part of the Bodleian Library.

The building owes it name to the fact that it was partly paid for by the profits from the History of the Great Rebellion by Lord Clarendon, whose son presented the University with its copyright. Today the building is used as an international exam centre.
