This chapter focuses on the printed books dedicated to Oxford. Between 1564 and 1580, about twelve imprints were dedicated directly to Oxford, thirteen counting Antony Munday's lost ‘Galien of France’. Most of the dedicated texts were of small consequence, failing to make second editions. Notably successful, by contrast, were Arthur Golding; Antony Munday, who dedicated more books to Oxford than any other; and John Lyly, whose Euphues his England became a repeat bestseller. All three were Oxford's servants, while George Baker was his surgeon.
