The Oxford Almanack is an annual almanac published by the Oxford University Press for the University of Oxford since 1674.[1]

The Oxford University Press originally held a monopoly on publishing almanacs; the almanacs traditionally included engravings and information about Oxford University, including the Heads of Colleges and a university calendar. No almanack appeared in 1675, but it has been published annually since 1676.[1]

Engravers and artists have included James Basire, Michael Burghers, J. M. W. Turner, and John Piper.

List of almanacks since 1992[edit]

Petter's The Oxford Almanacks lists the scenes depicted and their illustrators up to 1973, and the list is continued to 1991 in Bradshaw's article in Oxoniensia (see Further Reading for both references).
