"Harvard University" 1916 Photo Book


Availability: Out of stock

Unknown Photographer. "Harvard University." Cambridge/Brooklyn: The Harvard Co-Operative Society/The Albertype Company, 1916, First Edition, PB, 32 cm x 26 cm, 27 tipped-in duo-tone gravure photos (26 single sided interior pages + 1 cover photo), String bound with Harvard crimson tassels, thick tan deckle edged paper.

Undated on the publisher's page. The included photo of the Larz Anderson Bridge narrows publication to post-1915 when it was completed. One of the photos has a copyright of 1916. The Albertype Company was a postcard factory in Brooklyn and I see a postcard of one of the images from this volume online with a postmark of 1921. But the images in this book are larger than postcards size. This was a handsome production for a 1910s era photobook.
