“Manners Makyth Man”

Books and pamphlets about New College, Oxford and Winchester College



Scope and Use of the Collection

New College Library’s Colleges of St Mary Winton Collection holds around 200 books, pamphlets, and journal article off-prints relating to the life and history of the two linked educational institutions, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, founded by William of Wykeham (13241404).  Winchester College was founded in 1382 as the feeder school for New College, Oxford, founded in 1379; this double foundation provided the model for King Henry VI’s subsequent founding of Eton College (1440) and King’s College, Cambridge (1441), New College’s sister college.

New College and Winchester share the same motto, “Manners Makyth Man”, devised by William of Wykeham, as well as the same crest.

The Collection is a closed-access one; items cannot be browsed on open shelves, but should be requested in person via the Library Office or by sending an email request.  Some of the items are borrowable, and some are confined to usage within the Library only.


Provide Feedback and Suggest New Resources

If you would like to make a comment about the Colleges of St Mary Winton Collection, or you wish to suggest new books or pamphlets to be added to the Collection, you are invited to contact the Librarian.  The Library aims to acquire new items published about both New College and Winchester College and also seeks to backfill its holdings by acquiring appropriate modern antiquarian items as well.



Items in the Collection bear shelfmarks beginning OX1/.  They form part of the larger Local History collection held by New College Library.
