The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green is a novel by Cuthbert M. Bede, a pseudonym of Edward Bradley. It covers the exploits of Mr Verdant Green a first year undergraduate at Oxford University. Different editions have varying titles, including Mr Verdant Green: Adventures of an Oxford Freshman. The same characters reappear in a sequel entitled Little Mr Bouncer and His Friend Verdant Green.
Though Bradley's Verdant Green has become something of a cult book about Oxford, he had previously produced a series of pen and ink drawings entitled 'Ye freshmonne his adventures at University College, Durham'. He altered the setting on the advice of Mark Lemon at Punch. Drawings of 'Durham Student Life' survive in College Life published in Oxford, Cambridge and Durham in 1850.— Excerpted from The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
