It claims both to be a guide to the academical customs of the University of Cambridge and to its colloquial or cant terms with notes on those that differ from the usage of Oxford. The balance of information is given to the less serious aspects of university life: for example, considerably more space is given, in the definition of bishop, to a recipe for mulled port wine that to the clerical role. The work abounds in puns (in English and Latin), anecdotes, and extracts (mostly amusing) from more serious histories of the university, and ends with a tailpiece on how to graduate the reading way and the varmint way.

This fascinating work demonstrates that the publication of spoof guides to freshmen is nothing new.
