(Americana, Amherst College, Massachusetts, Class of 1898, Commencement Pamphlet).
Amherst College Commencement 1898.
Published 1898, Philadelphia by C. A. Wright.
Rare ephemeral item handed out to a small group at the event, likely under 250 copies total printed, perhaps far less.
Heavy card stock covers with original string tie, plus five pictorial leaves, each beautifully printed in rotogravure technique with original tissue guards for each.
A rare random survival, perhaps among a handful still in existence today.
Period pamphlet for the commencement ceremonies of the class of 1898.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
