Goldie 1883 - Bickers & Son, London - First Edition James Neville McQueen’s own copy. McQueen (page 83) rowed bow in the 1860 Oxford crew, and according to Goldie ‘a better race than that of 1860 has seldom been seen’ (page 173).

Illustrated with two large and beautiful engraved plates -
A Boat-race on the Cam in 1838, and The Oxford Boat in 1829, as well a facsimile of The Card of the Invitation to Dinner, a Plan of the Tables, and two vignettes titled The Old Style and The New Style. A copy of the ornate and decorated original letter press Menu is also tipped in.

‘The account of the dinner is followed by verbatim reports of the speeches, the text of two odes on the jubilee of the race, and alphabetical lists of Blues. The analytical appendices include summaries of the races, and lists of the schools, colleges, academic and athletic honours and subsequent professions of the oarsmen and coxswains. No less than 188 of 285 took Holy Orders.

Pages 131 to 201,
Old Blues and Their Battles, give a detailed account of each race by W. B. Woodgate, slightly altered by the compilers.’ – Brittain, Oar, Scull & Rudder .
  Provenance: James Neville McQueen. Whose signature is on the half-title, he has halso corrected the his initials, and added his former school ‘Trinity College, Glenalmond (page 83). McQueen (or MacQueen as he is listed in this work) rowed bow in the 1860 Oxford crew, and ‘a better race than that of 1860 has seldom been seen’ (page 173). His career is listed as ‘India’, and as such it appears he did not attend the commemorative dinner.
