[Price Three Shillings.]

See ! Oxford lifts her Head sublime,
Majestic in the Mofs 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 soft 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.
