Excerpt from Memories of Oxford It is no uncommon thing nowadays for a young Frenchman to spend a term or more at Oxford; but M. Bardoux is the first of such quasi-undergraduates to give us his impression of University life and teaching. The son of a well known senator and literary man, he brought to Oxford hereditary culture and intelligence, and an acquaintance with what is socially and intellectually best in his own University of Paris. Of an age to mix on equal terms with undergraduates, while, after the manner of his countrymen, more mature in mind than his English con temporaries, he saw much that is here, yet passes unobserved before our too accustomed eyes.
