Masterpieces of the World's Literature, Ancient and Modern free pdf Excerpt from Masterpieces of the World's Literature, Ancient and Modern: The Great Authors of the World With Their Master Productions Bede, Cuthbert, Edward Bradley, an English author- born in Kidderminster in 1827- died in Lenton, December 12, 1889. He graduated at Durham University, and was rector of Denton, Stretton, and finally Lenton from 1883 until his death. He contributed to "Punch" and other London periodicals, and published the "Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green, an Oxford Freshman" (London, 1855), a humorous picture of college life. His other works include: "Mr. Verdant Green Married and Done For (1856)- "The White Wife," a collection of Scottish legends (1864)- "Little Mr. Bouncer and his Friend Verdant Green" (1873-74)- and many books of travels. From "The Adventures Of Mr. Verdant Green." Mr. Verdant Green Matriculates, And Makes A Sensation. Mr. Green could not, of course, leave Oxford until he had seen his beloved son in that elegant cap and preposterous gown which constitute the present academical dress of the Oxford undergraduate- and to assume which, with a legal right to the same, matriculation is first necessary. As that amusing and instructive book, the University Statutes, says in its own delightful and unrivalled canine Latin, "Statutum est, quod nemo pro Student, seu Scholari, habeatur, nec ullis Universitatis privilegiis, aut beneficiis" (the cap and gown, of course, being among these), "gaudeat, nisi qui in aliquod Collegium vel Aulam admissus fuerit, et intra quindenam post talem admissionem in matriculam Universitatis fuerit relatus." So our hero put on the required white tie, and then went forth to complete his proper costume. There were so many persons purporting to be "Academical robe-makers" that Mr. Green was some little time in deciding who should be the tradesman favored with the order for his son's adornment.
