Cornell University Book of Views 1925. Published by Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, 1925. Soft Cover. The book is very large and measures 17 1/4" by 12 1/4" with 130 historic views of Cornell's campus. First Edition. Flexible faux leather edition, oversized oblong format. Full of fantastic period pictures of Cornell including panoramic shots of early football games and other sporting events including baseball, crew, cross country and winter sports. Has great old pictures of campus building and the Ithaca area. Also includes many interior shots of students engaged in various activities. A spectacular full page picture of the Cornell Reserve Officers drilling in WWI style uniforms and on horses. A stunning full page picture of Prudence Risley Hall, which is modeled after the Great Hall of Christ Church College, Oxford and is straight out of a Harry Potter film! A great collectible and would make a spectacular gift for the Cornell graduate or enthusiast. We have offered a half-dozen copies of this book for sale over the years, this one is easily in the best condition, often the cover is faded due to the faux leather, not with this one. Truly a unique and spectacular book.
