    THIS volume forms a supplement to the “Cambridge University Calendar,” and provides a record of University offices, honours, and distinctions to the year 1910. Up to 1913, when it had grown to 1547 pages, the “Calendar” itself contained historical information; but in that year the Syndics of the Press decided to transfer the historical particulars to a separate “Historical Register,” to be published less frequently. This rearrangement has made it possible to publish additional historical data, and among the added matter in the present volume may be mentioned lists of holders of University offices, professorships, and so on, from the earliest date of which there is any record; sections on the historical jurisdiction and procedure of the University courts, ceremonies, costume and discipline, as well as on the history of the Mathematical Tripos; and enlarged indexes. The Tripos lists in the old “Calendar,” moreover, have been collated with the original sources, aegrotats and honorary optimes have also been included, and the footnotes have been rewritten.
