HE PUBLISHER of this new Edition of the

UNIVERSITY CALEN

DAR, with diffidence offers it to the Members of the University, trusting in their candour to excuse any errors or mistakes, to which a work of this kind is liable, and which he has taken great pains to avoid.

He thankfully acknowledges the great assistance received from distinguished Characters in every College, who most willingly corrected the proof sheets respecting their several Societies.

On examining this edition, several alterations, (and he hopes improvements) will be found, among which, by the advice of many Gentlemen, he has prefixed the greatest part of the Introduction, first printed in Mr. Raworth's edition, in 1802, for which leave has been obtained.

ALSO, the form of proceeding to the degree of B. A. is added, with the Problems used in the SenateHouse in January last, for which he is indebted to the candour and liberality of the present Moderators.

One principal object with the Publisher has been to avoid giving offence to any one, and he hopes he has succeeded in that attempt.

The utility of this work being now universally allowed; any corrections, or hints for improvement, in any future editions, will be thankfully received by the Publisher.

[ocr errors]

HE UNIVERSITY of CAMBRIDGE is a Society of Students in all and every of the liberal Arts and Sciences, incorporated (13th Eliz.) by the name of the Chancellor, Masters, and Scholars. The frame of this little Commonwealth standeth upon the union of sixteen *Colleges or Societies, devoted to the study of learning and knowledge, and for the better service of the Church and State. All these §Colleges or Halls have been founded since the beginning of the reign of King +EDWARD I. and are maintained by the endowments of their several Founders and Benefactors. Each College is a Body Corporate, and bound by its own statutes; but is likewise controuled by the paramount laws of the University. The present University Statutes were given by Queen ELIZABETH, and, with former privileges, were sanctioned by Parliament. They are made the foundation upon which all new laws are framed.

Each of the sixteen Departments or Colleges in this Literary Republic furnishes Members both for the Executive and Legislative branch of its Government. -The place of assembly is the SENATE-HOUSE.

All persons, who are Masters of Arts, or Doctors in one or other of the three faculties, viz. Divinity,

*DOWNING College, as being still unfounded, is omitted, Colleges and Halls are here synonimous; the reverse at Oxford. Thus CLARE HALL is called Collegium, sive Domus, sive Aula de Clare.

The first authentic Charter is said to be dated 15. Hɛn, 111. and to be found among the records in the Tower.

Those Bachelors of Divinity, who are Members of the Senate, deduce their privilege from the prior degree of A. M.
