The diaries of Joseph Romilly (1791-1864), University Registrary 1832-61, have long been known as an invaluable source for nineteenth-century Cambridge. A selection of passages for 1832-42, was published by the late J.P.T. Bury, and was warmly received. (This has been been republished by the C.U.P.) Dr. Bury had intended to take publication of the diaries down to December 1847; now, on the basis of his preliminary selection, his widow Mrs M.E. Bury and Dr J.D. Pickles have edited the diary for these years. During 1842-47 the diaries continue to miss hardly a day. The life of an official of the unreformed university is vividly, often wittily, recorded. In addition they provide much that illumines the life of the town and early Victorian society generally. Romilly was admitted a pensioner of Trinity in 1808. In 1815 he became a Fellow and from 1840 one of the Seniority who, with the Master, ruled the College. The diaries are thus of particular interest to the history of the College.
