HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE OF ST JOHN

THE EVANGELIST,

by THOMAS BAKER, B.D., Ejected Fellow. Edited by John E. B.

MAYOR, M.A., Fellow of St John's. Two Vols. Demy 8vo. 245.

“ It may be doubted whether there is any MS. in existence which Cambridge men have been more anxious to see committed to the press, under competent editorship, than the History of St John's by that Socius Ejectus Thomas Baker, whose life Walpole desired to write ..... It is perhaps well for Baker's reputation .. that it was reserved for so peculiarly competent an editor as Mr Mayor to give this history to the world. .. If it be highly to the credit of the Syndics of the Pitt Press to have printed the book, the manner in which he has edited it reflects no less credit upon Mr Mayor."-Notes and Queries.

To antiquaries the book will be a source of almost inexhaustible amusement, by historians it will be found a work of considerable service on questions respecting our social progress in past times ; and the care and thoroughness with which Mr Mayor has discharged his editorial functions are creditable to his learning and industry.”-A thenæum.

“The work displays very wide reading,

and it will be of great use to members of the college and of the university, and, perhaps, of still greater use to students of English history, ecclesiastical, political, social, literary and academical, who have hitherto had to be content with 'Dyer.'”-Academy.

“It may be thought that the history of a college cannot be particularlyattractive. The two volumes before us, however, have something more than a mere special interest for those who have been in any way connected with St John's College, Cambridge; they contain much which will be read with pleasure by a far wider circle. Many of the facts brought under our notice are of considerable value to the general historical student. . . Every member of this ancient foundation will recognize the worth of Mr Mayor's labours, which, as it will appear, have been by no means confined to mere ordinary edi. torial work. The index with which Mr Mayor has furnished this useful work leaves nothing to be desired."-Spectator.
