    Excerpt from Charles Pritchard, Late Savilian Professor of Astronomy in the University of Oxford: Memoirs of His Life

    I feel that the name of Charles Pritchard will itself be deemed sufficient justification for the publication of this book. A word, however, may fairly be said as to the manner in which the Memoirs came to be written.

    Upon the death of my father, it was thought among those who had known him privately, and also within the wide circle of those whose' work and enthusiasms had lain near to his own, who were indebted to him as their master, and who had trodden where he led and assisted in the realisation of his hopes, that some authentic record of his life and work should be made. It was his old friend, the pupil of the early days of the Clapham Grammar School, Sir George Grove, who urged me to undertake the work. In the summer of 1893, he wrote to me: 'i have suggested that we should propose a biography to you. In it many of us could have our say. What do you think of this?' The proposal for a joint work was readily adopted, and through the kindness and generous assistance of many to whom the memory of Charles Pritchard was dear, a scheme gradually shaped itself, and resulted in the present volume.

    If the method adopted has of necessity interfered some what with the chronological sequence of the chapters, it has this advantage, that each part of my father's many-sided life has been dealt with by the writer best qualified to form a just estimate of it.
