Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1889 Excerpt: ...It was then announced that four public Entrance Examinations should be held in future on July 8, November 1, February 1, and on the second Monday after Easter Day. And it was further notified that Students entering on the last days were expected to be prepared in the whole of the JEneid, and in fourteen Books of the Iliad.

One of them, Mr. Cooper, was awarded Optime as a judgment. This judgment was awarded by the Examiners in the middle of the last century more frequently than is commonly supposed.
