Cambridge Commemorated is an illustrated anthology of passages of prose and poetry describing life at the University of Cambridge from its foundation to the present day. The daily lives of dons and students, town and gown relations, change and continuity are unfolded in letters, diaries, memoirs, novels, college records, newspapers and magazine articles. The human face of the university emerges through accounts of Cambridge characters over the centuries in a wealth of anecdotal detail enlivening this historical anthology.
'This is an excellent book, wonderful value for money, well-illustrated, perfect for dipping into, interesting on every page, stimulating to thought, and entertaining for idleness.'-- The Cambridge Review 'This elegant volume from the University's own press will make a super souvenir.' -- The Observer
