This is a 1995 edition of Dr Stubbings' Bedders, Bulldogs and Bedells: A Cambridge ABC, first published by the author in 1991. This edition was revised, enlarged and adorned with a selection of illustrations. The book aims to explain the many special words and usages current in University society. What are bedders, bulldogs, bedells? What is a tripos? What is a gyp-room? What (in the past) was a ten-year man? What was the Wooden Spoon? Puzzled visitors, new undergraduates, even dons will find the answers here.
