Cord-bound, brown wraps with darker brown titles. This copy has light, general wear with anticipated aging. VG to VG+. First edition.There are illustrations of campus buildings, school activities, and students. The booklet lists statistics from 1907 so it dates from that year or the next. Relatively uncommon. WorldCat locates around thirty copies in libraries. This copy comes with an 8X10 photograph. The image shows Native American students in a shoemaking class. On verso it is marked as an "IMMIGRANTS reject" and stamped "Reproduced from the collections of the Library of Congress". A pen notation indicates that the photo is from 1895. This may have been a photograph that was considered for use in an American Heritage magazine article but was not used. The photograph appears to have been made from a negative, though I am not an expert.; B&W Photographs; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 32 +Insert pages
