IN presenting a new Edition of the CAMBRIDGE GUIDE to the Public, the Editor and Publishers have been induced from a consideration of the numerous improvements recently effected and still
progress in this seat of learning, to attempt that corresponding improvement in their description which is so justly due to the celebrity of the subjects.
In doing this they have spared neither care nor expense to render their publication as accurate, complete, and elegant, as their means and limits would allow. Whilst the matter belonging to former editions has been scrupulously examined and cor rected, and a considerable part has been entirely re-written, descriptions of the several Buildings and Improvements in the University down to the latest
period are given, and Engravings in a superior style, designed and executed by eminent artists, illustrate their pages. In order to accomplish their undertaking with satisfaction, they have consulted those who were best qualified to afford information and assistance; and they gratefully offer to them, and to their other friends who have encouraged their enquiries, their sincerest thanks. In conclusion, the Editor and Publishers hope that the work will be found so much improved in every part, as to be considered not only an interesting and accurate Guide to the Stranger, but also worthy of a place in the Library as a condensed and lively History of the University, Town, and County of Cambridge.
