Disgusted by the chaotic state of the Press, and antagonized by the Vice-Chancellor George Huddesford , Blackstone subjected the print shop to close scrutiny, but his findings on its confused organization and sly procedures met with only "gloomy and contemptuous silence" from his colleagues, or "at best with a languid indifference.
Here, Blackstone characterized the Press as an inbred institution that had given up all pretence of serving scholarship, "languishing in a lazy obscurity … a nest of imposing mechanics. The university had moved to adopt all of Blackstone's reforms by Early copyright law had begun to undercut the Stationers, and the university took pains to lease out its Bible work to experienced printers.
When the American War of Independence deprived Oxford of a valuable market for its Bibles, this lease became too risky a proposition, and the Delegates were forced to offer shares in the Press to those who could take "the care and trouble of managing the trade for our mutual advantage.

Both prepared editions at the invitation of the Greek scholar Thomas Gaisford , who served as a Delegate for 50 years. During his time, the growing Press established distributors in London , and employed the bookseller Joseph Parker in Turl Street for the same purposes in Oxford.
Parker also came to hold shares in the Press itself. In the Delegates bought land in Walton Street. Buildings were constructed from plans drawn up by Daniel Robertson and Edward Blore , and the Press moved into them in In , it was still a joint stock printing business in an academic backwater, offering learned works to a relatively small readership of scholars and clerics.
The Press was the product of "a society of shy hypochondriacs," as one historian put it. They were long-serving classicists, presiding over a learned business that printed 5 or 10 titles each year, such as Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon , and they displayed little or no desire to expand its trade. Combe was a better business man than most Delegates, but still no innovator: he failed to grasp the huge commercial potential of India paper , which grew into one of Oxford's most profitable trade secrets in later years.
He funded schooling at the Press and the endowment of St. Barnabas Church in Oxford. By the Delegacy had ceased to be 'perpetual,' and evolved into five perpetual and five junior posts filled by appointment from the university, with the Vice Chancellor a Delegate ex officio: a hothouse for factionalism that Price deftly tended and controlled. The Press had ended its relationship with Parker's in and in bought a small London bindery for some Bible work. By this time, Oxford also had a London warehouse for Bible stock in Paternoster Row , and in its manager Henry Frowde — was given the formal title of Publisher to the University.
Frowde came from the book trade, not the university, and remained an enigma to many. One obituary in Oxford's staff magazine The Clarendonian admitted, "Very few of us here in Oxford had any personal knowledge of him.
In , the year he retired as Secretary, the Delegates bought back the last shares in the business.
In , he also took on the publication that led that process to its conclusion: the huge project that became the Oxford English Dictionary OED. Lengthy negotiations led to a formal contract. The next Secretary struggled to address this problem. Despite his education at Balliol and a background in London publishing, Gell found the operations of the Press incomprehensible. The Delegates began to work around him, and the university finally dismissed Gell in An acutely gifted classicist, he came to the head of a business that was successful in traditional terms but now moved into uncharted terrain.
To meet these demands, OUP needed much more revenue. Cannan set out to obtain it.
Outflanking university politics and inertia, he made Frowde and the London office the financial engine for the whole business. Frowde steered Oxford rapidly into popular literature, acquiring the World's Classics series in Milford , to be Frowde's assistant. Milford became Publisher when Frowde retired in , and ruled over the lucrative London business and the branch offices that reported to it until his own retirement in Horace Hart was appointed as Controller of the Press at the same time as Gell, but proved far more effective than the Secretary.
With extraordinary energy and professionalism, he improved and enlarged Oxford's printing resources, and developed Hart's Rules as the first style guide for Oxford's proofreaders. Subsequently, these became standard in print shops worldwide. When the Institute opened in , the Press had employees eligible to join it, including apprentices.
London business[ edit ] Frowde had no doubt that the Press's business in London could be very largely increased and was appointed on contract with a commission on sales. Seven years later, as Publisher to the University, Frowde was using his own name as an imprint as well as 'Oxford University Press'.
This style persisted till recent times, with two kinds of imprints emanating from the Press's London offices. The distinctions implied by the imprints were subtle but important. Books that London issued on commission paid for by their authors or by some learned body were styled 'Henry Frowde', or 'Humphrey Milford' with no mention of OUP, as if the Publisher were issuing them himself, while books that the Publisher issued under the rubric of the university bore the imprint 'Oxford University Press'.
Both these categories were mostly handled by London, while Oxford in practice the Secretary looked after the Clarendon Press books. Commission books were intended as cash cows to fund the London Business's overheads, since the Press did not lay aside any resources for this purpose.

Nevertheless, Frowde was especially careful to see that all commission books he published met with the Delegates' approval. This was not an uncommon arrangement for scholarly or antiquarian presses. This was to be a complete retranslation of the text of the Bible from the oldest original Greek and Hebrew versions, superseding the Authorized Version of Frowde's agency was set up just in time, for the Revised Version, published on 17 May , sold a million copies before publication and at a breakneck rate thenceforth, though overproduction ultimately made a dent in the profits.
From quite early on he had ideas of advancing the Press's overseas trade, at first in Europe and increasingly in America, Canada, India, and Africa. He was more or less singlehandedly responsible for setting up the American Branch as well as depots in Edinburgh , Toronto , and Melbourne.
Frowde dealt with most of the logistics for books carrying the OUP imprint, including handling authors, binding, dispatching, and advertising, and only editorial work and the printing itself were carried out at or supervised from Oxford. He himself was authorized to invest money up to a limit in the business but was prevented from doing so by family troubles.
Hence his interest in overseas sales, for by the s and s there was money to be made in India, while the European book market was in the doldrums.
But Frowde's distance from the Press's decision-making meant he was incapable of influencing policy unless a Delegate spoke for him. Most of the time Frowde did whatever he could within the mandate given him by the Delegates.
In , when applying for a pension, he wrote to J. Conflict over secretaryship[ edit ] Price, trying in his own way to modernize the Press against the resistance of its own historical inertia, had become overworked and by was so exhausted as to want to retire.
Benjamin Jowett had become vice chancellor of the university in Impatient of the endless committees that would no doubt attend the appointment of a successor to Price, Jowett extracted what could be interpreted as permission from the delegates and headhunted Philip Lyttelton Gell , a former student acolyte of his, to be the next secretary to the delegates.
Gell was making a name for himself at the publishing firm of Cassell, Petter and Galpin , a firm regarded as scandalously commercial by the delegates. Gell himself was a patrician who was unhappy with his work, where he saw himself as catering to the taste of "one class: the lower middle",[ citation needed ] and he grasped at the chance of working with the kind of texts and readerships OUP attracted.
Jowett promised Gell golden opportunities, little of which he actually had the authority to deliver. He timed Gell's appointment to coincide with both the Long Vacation from June to September and the death of Mark Pattison, so potential opposition was prevented from attending the crucial meetings. Jowett knew the primary reason why Gell would attract hostility was that he had never worked for the Press nor been a delegate, and he had sullied himself in the city with raw commerce.
His fears were borne out. Gell immediately proposed a thorough modernising of the Press with a marked lack of tact, and earned himself enduring enemies.
Nevertheless, he was able to do a lot in tandem with Frowde, and expanded the publishing programmes and the reach of OUP until about Then his health broke down under the impossible work conditions he was being forced to endure by the Delegates' non-cooperation.
The delegates then served him with a notice of termination of service that violated his contract. However, he was persuaded not to file suit and to go quietly. In their view the Press was, and always would be, an association of scholars.
Gell's idea of "efficiency" appeared to violate that culture, although subsequently a very similar programme of reform was put into practice from the inside. Milford , his younger colleague, effectively succeeded Frowde in Both were Oxford men who knew the system inside out, and the close collaboration with which they worked was a function of their shared background and worldview. Cannan was known for terrifying silences, and Milford had an uncanny ability, testified to by Amen House employees, to 'disappear' in a room rather like a Cheshire cat , from which obscurity he would suddenly address his subordinates and make them jump.
Whatever their reasons for their style of working, both Cannan and Milford had a very hardnosed view of what needed to be done, and they proceeded to do it. Indeed, Frowde knew within a few weeks of Milford's entering the London office in  that he would be replaced. Milford, however, always treated Frowde with courtesy, and Frowde remained in an advisory capacity till Milford rapidly teamed up with J.
Hodder Williams of Hodder and Stoughton , setting up what was known as the Joint Account for the issue of a wide range of books in education, science, medicine and also fiction.Dr Farukh says: Combe was a better business man than most Delegates, but still no innovator: he failed to grasp the huge commercial potential of India paper , which grew into one of Oxford's most profitable trade secrets in later years.
In , Milford hired Hubert J. It had also published the Yattendon Hymnal in and, more significantly, the first edition of The English Hymnal in , under the editorship of Percy Dearmer and the then largely unknown Ralph Vaughan Williams. In any event, the result was Nicholas Hawksmoor 's beautiful but impractical structure beside the Sheldonian in Broad Street. In , Europe was plunged into turmoil. And in he established as a separate division the Music Department, with its own offices in Amen House and with Foss as first Musical Editor.
