This display features a small selection of the historic customer ledgers of venerable Oxford shoemaker, Ducker & Son, which served 'town and gown' from its well-known shop on Turl Street for more than a century before closing in 2016. The Bodleian Libraries recently purchased the ledgers, which provide a glimpse into the lives of the shop's famous clients such as Lord of the Rings author JRR Tolkien and Brideshead Revisited novelist Evelyn Waugh.
This small display will offer a look at some of the names and purchases found inside the ledgers.
