S. A., March 1922There are also in this Islande two famous Universities, the one Oxforde, the other Cambridge, both for the profession of all sciences, for Divinitie, phisicke, Lawe and all kinds of learning, excelling all the Universities in Christendom.I was myselfe in either of them and like them both so well that I meane not in the way of controversie to preferre any for the better in Englande, but both for the best in the World, saving this that Colledges in Oxenford are much more stately for the building, and Cambridge much more sumptuous for the houses in the towne, but the learning neyther lyeth in the free stones of the one, nor the fine streates of the other, for out of them both do dayly proceede men of great wisedome, to rule in the common wealth, of learning to instruct the common people, of all singular kinde of professions to do good to all. And let this suffice not to enquire which of them is the superiour, but that neyther of them have their equall, neither to aske which of them is the most auncient, but whether any other bee so famous.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
