Views of Harvard

A Pictorial Record to 1860

Hamilton Vaughan Bail

ISBN 9780674968097

Publication date: 05/01/1949

How Harvard College looked, from its beginnings to 1860, is shown in this collection of views, many heretofore unpublished, of its buildings and grounds. These lithographs, watercolors, charcoal drawings, and engravings on copper, steel, and wood include works by Paul Revere, Justice Joseph Story, and Jonathan Fisher. The accompanying text describes the changing scene and the buildings as they appear, and gives a description of all known Harvard views prior to the age of photography. This is an interesting book for anyone interested in early New England buildings, as well as for bibliophiles and collectors of prints.
