Did you know that…

The Soul of Severus Snape

The Soul of Severus Snape

Oxford is a literary city through and through – nobody could ever doubt that.

But did you know that…
… Oxford is the city with the most published authors per square mile?
… Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is the 3rd bestselling novel in the world with over 150 million copies sold; The Hobbit is the 4th?
… A copy of the first edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the most expensive children’s books in the world at a value of $1.5 million?’
… There are over 30 film adaptions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; Tim Burton’s recent version is the 9th highest-grossing film ever?
… The Harry Potter films – which for example feature Oxford’s Christ Church College as the legendary Hogwarts – is the 3rd biggest blockbuster in world history?
… The Harry Potter books have been translated into 67 languages?
