  • Request

Dedicated to the earl of Manchester, chancellor of the university. At fols. 27–30 four leaves are inserted from an older MS., containing the names of the officers and professors, etc. in 1628 with the arms of many of them well executed in colours. Probably these form a fragment of a copy of John Scott's account of Cambridge, described in Gough's British Topography, vol. i. pp. 216, 217., all the MSS. of which were executed in different years.
