Description

Excerpt from Munimenta Alme Universitatis Glasguensis: Records of the University of Glasgow, From Its Foundation Till 1727 The first volume records the foundations, Episcopal, Regal, and Papal of the University, and its constitution so far as imposed or Shaped by outward authority, its privileges and immunities, its endowments and acquisitions of property. It is designed not only to shew the titles Of the different College estates, but to illustrate their management, rents, and produce. It will be found to afford information of the whole business transactions of the University a body corporate dealing with parties outside its walls. The documents are arranged chrono logically from beginning to end. The more important are given at length and verbatim. Of some it has been thought sufficient to print an abridgement, retaining the operative words of the originals. While in a third sort, either longer or less important, a short descriptive notice of the document only is given. The Table of Contents prefixed to the volume, while it indicates the source from which 'each document is printed, the authority to which it is entitled, and whether it is given in full or in abbreviate, furnishes at the same time such an account Of its purport as may satisfy the common reader, while it will serve to direct the more curious inquirer to the matters of interest it contains.
