Some are little more than lists of the Provosts, Fellows, Head-masters, Collegers, and Oppidans- others describe the buildings of the College and the historical incidents connected with the old foundation- while a third class includes more ample notices of the famous men who have been educated in the School.

Among these works are the Registrum Regale and the School Lists, - both valuable to those who wish to know only when some famous man entered or left Eton. The work entitled Eminent Etonians, by Sir Edward Creasy, gives, in chronological order, the lives of many able, learned, and exalted persons who have been educated in Eton College, but no attempt is made at classification, the learned author preferring the mere order of time.

As these Memoirs were published many-cars ago, and no intention of remodelling the original work has been expressed, it is felt that the time has come when a fresh Eton biography might properly make its appearance, without exposing the Author or Publisher to the charge of book-making.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
