About this title
Excerpt from Cambridge Revisited
In the following pages no attempt has been made to tell once more the story of the University, Colleges and Town of Cambridge. Avoiding as far as possible the well-beaten track I have been content to wander amidst the bye-ways of local history, satisfied if I could penetrate to some small extent into the mass of curious and interesting lore which has gathered about Cambridge to an unusual degree.
These chapters, with two exceptions, were originally contributed to the Cambridge Chronicle (several appearing concurrently in the Cambridge Daily News). The friendly criticism, encouragement and offers of information which their appearance called forth came as an agreeable surprise to me, and, in consequence, I have been tempted to present them again to the public, after revision and with many additions, in a more permanent form.
But for the constant encouragement of Mr Ambrose Harding, who has advised and helped me with the book in all its stages, and whose support I cannot hope adequately to acknowledge, this little volume would never have been written.
To Mr A. T. Bartholomew I am also much indebted for reading these pages in manuscript and giving me valued direction. Mr A. H. Cook has added to the usefulness of the book by providing a good index, and has been indefatigable in clearing up difficult points of information.
I am under a great obligation to the Rev. Canon Bonney, Sc.D., F.R.S., who, drawing upon the memories of a long life, has specially written for these pages his personal reminiscences of Charles Kingsley, Professor E. H. Palmer, and of the Upware Republic Society.
