About this Item

First edition. With 84 illustrations and maps. Thick 8vo, publisher’s original crimson cloth gilt lettered on the spine, t.e.g. xc, 660 with index pp. A fine copy, bright and well preserved. FIRST EDITION AND SCARCE. This work described what Morison noted as the most rapidly developed and significant in the history of the university. Harvard was already a great university but so revolutionary were the changes in administration and faculty and instruction during the time, so great was the expansion of staff and curriculum in order to keep pace with the advance of human knowledge, that the University was practically made over from top to bottom. Morison would write further books on the history of Harvard University and the founding of the college and would become famous for an extraordinary breadth of important works in history and historiography including a many volume work on the American Navy during WWII and his multi-awarded work on Chistopher Columbus--ADMIRAL OF THE OCEAN SEA. Morison was a member of the class of 1908. Bookseller Inventory # 24996
