About this Item

A lovely collectible. This is described in the introduction as the third volume of The Spectrum produced at the college, so perhaps, although the college goes back to 1832, the tradition of yearbooks was a new one. The publication date is confusing; the title page states that it was published by the junior class of the college in 1893, but the title names it the Spectrum of 1894. It is very beautifully produced, with great group photos of subjects like the football, baseball, banjo and mandolin clubs interspersed with charming drawings and engraved plates. Students are listed, but the practice of showing a portrait of grads does not seem to have taken hold yet. Toward the back are humorous verses, along with some Civil War history--an account of the dedication of a monument to the 26th Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. At the very back are advertisements. Production values are sky-high. The book, which measures 9.5 by 7 inches and is about 250 pages in length, is bound in blue buckram, with a stripe of tan leather-look paper across the front on which is printed "Spectrum '94" in gold. There is light edgewear to the boards, but the binding is sound and the pages are clean. Scans on request. Bookseller Inventory # 23942
