Ninth annual report of the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale college. 1873-74 / printed by order of the general assembly

New Haven: Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor, Printers, for the school, 1874. 59p., sewn gathering about 9 x 6 inches in plain printed wraps. Textblock bears light dampstain throughout (no mustiness, no mildew); wraps are also stained, edgeworn and rubbed, and back-cover leaf is badly chipped and creased with slight loss of a contents list.

New discoveries, new emphasis on freehand drawing (to facilitate scientific record-making), lists of students, governing board members, lecturers &c, brief characterization of courses and library resources available --an entirely straightforward treatment which was augmented --or supplanted, this is unclear-- the following year, 1875, by a goofy undergraduate statistics booklet.
