Excerpt from Collectanea: Second Series It would be to fail in an obvious duty if the Editor of this volume did not take the opportunity of a Preface to return his thanks to those who have so kindly allowed themselves to be associated with him in a labour of love, for such it has been to one and all. To have been permitted to lay a single stone in the fabric which the Oxford Historical Society has undertaken to rear, is itself the reward, and it is enough. The Editor hopes, however, that his associates will forgive him if he points out that in the case of each of the four medieval articles, the Society has been peculiarly fortunate in securing the services of the one man to whom of all others that particular subject might most properly have been assigned. Mr. Ogle, an experienced Clerk of the Market, and a veteran antiquary, fitly represents the long series of University functionaries who in the fourteenth century succeeded the Kings officer. To bring so prolonged a history within reasonable limits is no small feat; and it deserves thanks all the more since the unavoidable delay in producing this volume has caused some of his work to be anticipated by Mr. Clark's excellent edition of Woods Antiquities of the City of Oxford. On the other hand it has now become possible, by Mr. Clark's permission, to insert the diagram of Oxford Market which has just appeared in that book, and so to illustrate in some measure Mr. Ogles Topographical chapter.
