Excerpt from Letters, Lectures, and Reviews, Including the Phrontisterion, or Oxford in the 19th Century

The present volume contains the minor philosophical works of the late Dean Manse], nearly all his reviews, ' together with two articles hitherto unpublished, viz. The Lecture on Utility as the Ground of Moral Obligation, and the fragment on Berkeley's Philosophy, the completion of which was prevented by the decease of the author. The Phrontisterion has been added at the request of several friends. After some hesitation it was resolved to reprint this exquisite parody exactly as its author left it, rather than run the risk of spoiling its effect by explaining allusions which will be easily understood by all who are capable of enjoying such a droll combination of wit and learning. The matter enclosed in brackets is new, and has been derived from the Author's own ms. Notes, from which also a few verbal alterations in the original text have been made.

The Editor's task has been confined solely to the correction of the press, and the addition of an occasional reference.
