Descrizione

I have attempted to make this little book serve a double purpose — to present some sort of portrait of the vigorous college life of the past and to give such historical detail as may explain the place in guide-book fashion. The first two chapters give the bare detail of its history; the others deal more fully with less arid matters. Facts of purely antiquarian interest have been either omitted or left to an appendix. The book is in no sense a minute history; rather it is an attempt to cast a rather bald material into narrative form. Hence the author asks pardon for much that may seem superficial and trifling to graver eyes. The authorities used were the ordinary works on the general history of the University, and such manuscript sources of information as the vice-principals' Register and documents in possession of the College. I have to thank the Principal of Brasenose for kindly placing at my disposal certain notes and extracts which he had made on the subject, and I Should also express my obliga tions to the best-informed Sketch of the College history which I have met with, Mr. Madan's article in Mr. Clark's Colleges of Oxford. To Mr. B. C. Boulter of Brasenose I am much indebted for the drawing of a View from an upper window in the Old Quadrangle.
