Overview

Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII, who merged two older institutions, Michaelhouse and the King's Hall. The beauty of Trinity's courts attracts visitors from around the world, but the College is also a thriving, modern community. This history, published in 1906, covers the period from the foundation until the early Victorian era, and will appeal to those interested in the history of both the college and the University. It is divided into chronological chapters, each illustrated by the series editor, Edmund H. New. As Rouse Ball states, '… Trinity College Cambridge is the largest collegiate foundation at either of the ancient universities, and, few, if any visitors to Cambridge leave without walking through its courts. This booklet is written in the belief that there are many such visitors who would like to know rather more about the College than can be learnt from a stroll round its buildings.'
