BY ROBERT POTTS, M.A.
ABOUT seven years since, was published a book entitled Liber Cantabrigiensis, containing an account of the Aids, the Encouragements, and the Rewards offered to Students, at the Colleges and University of Cambridge. The changes introduced by recent legislation, have rendered some account of them a necessary addition to the former Publication, and the object of this Second Part of the Liber Cantabrigiensis is briefly to describe these changes. The principal sources from which this compilation has been made, are the Report of the Royal Commissioners, the Cambridge University Act, the Statutes framed under the provisions of that Act, and the rules and regulations made for carrying out the powers granted by the New Statutes, besides the valuable assistance received from several Members of the University.
The subject of the work is naturally divided into two portions, one relating to the University, and the other to the Colleges. An Appendix is added containing the papers set at the Examinations in 1861-2, for the Open Scholarships and Exhibitions recently instituted at the different Colleges, for the competition of Students before coming into residence.
