'Grace books' were the volumes in which scribes recorded decisions of the administration of the University of Cambridge during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Grace Book Γ, first published in 1908, is the third of the Grace Books, Books A and B having been published in three volumes during the preceding decade. While Grace Books A and B included details of financial transactions, this volume focuses on the conferral of degrees by examination and incorporation, and on various dispensations. This compilation, with a substantial introduction and index by William George Searle and J. W. Clark, constitutes a valuable source for those researching British history and institutions in the early Tudor period, and this reissue will make them readily available to scholars today.
