PREFACE.
-
IN
this volume I have brought together certain documents andnotes which seemed
to
me to serve naturally as appendixes
to
Wood'sautobiographical remains.
By
prescription
of
former editions, some
of
the documents connected with Wood's trial for libel, 1692-1693• had acquired a right
to
a place in Wood's Life.
To
these I was able to add otherdocuments of the set, recently brought to light by the Keeper
of
theArchives, and
not
inferior in value
or
interest to those hitherto published.
Nor
did I think it right,
on
account
of
the triviality
of
some
of
the records,
to
leave out any document connected with the case.
So
far as I know, this
is
the only suit in the University Court,
in
whichanything approaching to a complete set
of
documents is preserved ;
and,
therefore, apart from its connexion with Wood's life, it is the
one
case
m
which we have set before
us
the procedure
of
the
Curia
Cance/lar~i'.
The
Catalogue
of
MS. Authorities
was
finished, after a fashion,
in
188g,
and sent to press
on
January
q,
18go,
with a view to thenprinting it.
It
has since been added
to
and re-written. During theyears in which it has lain by me in MS., I have found that it hassupplied answers
to
many questions raised by others as well as myself;
and
therefore I have some warrant for supposing that,
in
spite
of
its
imperfections, it will prove
of
service to students. Further search
among
MSS. bearing
on
Oxford would have improved
it
at
many points;
but
in
such further search I can take
no
part, since my new dutieshave removed me far from Oxford and from
all
libraries.
As
regards the Additional Notes, I intended,
at
first, to give only
 
vi
PREFACE.
such necessary corrections as had been suggested to
me
since thepublication of the other three
volumes.
But having been led
to
peruse the account-books
of
the University in connexion
with
theseventeenth-century repairs
of
S.
Mary's steeple, and finding thatthey contained accurate details on numerous points mentioned
by
Wood, I resolved to make
full
use of this source
of
information, so faras it threw light on Woorl's Life and Times.
In
the present volume I
have
to acknowledge
very
special obligations
to
the
Rev.
T.
Vere Bayne, Keeper
of
the Archives
of
theUniversity, and
to
Falconer Madan, Esq., Fellow of Brasenose
Go
liege.I have also to thank
J.
K. Hudson, Esq.,B.A., ofWadham College,
for
kind help towards the Catalogue
of
MS.
Authorities.ANDREW CLARK.
ADDENDUM.
The
old oath-book
of
the Tailors' Company, a charter of theCordwainers' Company, and other documents relating to the tradegilds are in the possession
of

Loan
Exhibition,
Nov.
7 and 8, 1894, of the Oxford Architectural and Historical Society.
