Wellesley College Views

[Wellesley, Mass.]: Wellesley College, 1909.

Softcover. Near fine. 9 x 7" string-tied cardstock wraps, unpaginated, but pp. [54] containing 43 b/w half-tone photographs documenting the grounds and activities of Wellesley College, plus two frontispieces (one half-tone, the other mezzotint with tissue guard). Minimal edgewear, a little foxing and age-toning internally, else near fine. The photo essay is preceded by a two-page introduction which serves as both an advertisement for incoming students and as a call for funding "so that promising young women may not be forced by lack of funds to abandon the course, or to sacrifice health and success in the struggle for self-support in college." The first frontispiece portrait of President Ellen Fitz Pendleton (and additional flyleaf) is a later addition (Ms. Pendleton was inaugurated in October of 1911). The original mezzotint frontispiece portrait of President Carline Hazard which follows has seen the addition in the edge of the plate of the dates of her tenure (1899-1910). Scarce (four copies only in OCLC), and perhaps unique (the copies in OCLC all seemingly without the addition of the 1911 portrait).
