This chapter describes works dedicated to Oxford. In number and kind, books dedicated to Oxford match his character and reputation as these can be ascertained on other grounds. He attracts the attention of theologians, poets, distillers, and a musician, who have translated works from the Continent, or composed original works in English. Many of the dedicators have a previous connection with Oxford, whether as servants of himself or of his father, or, in the case of George Baker, as his physician. With about 28 dedications to his name, Oxford ranks just above Henry Hastings, 3rd Earl of Huntingdon (24), and Sir Philip Sidney (25), and just below Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick (30).
