The Collegiate Guide to Greater Boston was published "once in a while" by the Harvard Crimson. With detailed listings on points of interest, theatrics and music, libraries, museums, galleries, coffee houses, clubs and bars, restaurants, hotels and motor houses, young ladies' colleges, clothing furnishers, parks and beaches, places of worship, and sundries (private detectives, clairvoyants, tattoo removal, wake-up services, etc.). A wonderful look at another era; lots of Boston-area collegiate nostalgia. The misogynistic section on "Young Ladies' Colleges" opens: "In spite of a plump circuit of colleges for women, Greater Boston is not a huge, full hogshead of feminine beauty." Each school is summarized with lines from Shakespeare, the worst example being Miss Trow's School as "a cistern for foul toads." Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $40.00
