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. A completely up-to-date treatment, it gives a concise description of the material in the principal Museums of the University. 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.
