Full brown pebbled grain morocco, front cover lettered "Yale", spine in six compartments, decorated paper endpapers, all edges gilt. 12 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches (33 x 32 cm); with 132 mounted oval albumen prints of the staff of the school and the graduating class, followed by 22 views of the College. Neatly rebacked retaining original spine, some minor foxing to mounts.
