Designed primarily as a convenient guide book to the University for summer visitors and Tercentenary guests, this little volume resembles Baedeker in providing much incidental historical and architectural description.

The numerous illustrations will help the reader at a distance to gain a comprehensive idea of the grounds and buildings of Harvard. To those contemplating a trip to the University, it will of course be indispensable.
