The Harvard Book: Images

a series of Views and Portraits


In 1875 F.O. Vaille and H.A. Clark collected and published The Harvard Book, a two volume series of historical, biographical, and descriptive sketches profusely illustrated with 75 fine heliotype plates and many wood engravings. These huge leather bond, gold embossed two volumes were a gift from the late Edith Maream Stebbins, a member of the First Unitarian Universalist Parish in Milton, Massachusetts. It has an abundance of historic visual art now shared worldwide online.
