Lakeville CT: The Pythian and Olympian Societies of the Hotchkiss School, 1893. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Remarkably well-preserved first publication of the newly formed Hotchkiss School in Lakeville (a section of Salisbury) CT. The school was founded in 1892: In the greeting (preface of the book) the editor writes "In offering this, the first publication of the Hotchkiss School, we wish to present to the students and their friends a book containing a history of the first year of the School". This "yearbook" records all manner of classes, sport and clubs, and includes advertisements from local vendors and merchants in Connecticut and Millerton NY, just across the State line a few miles away, plus some from businesses in New Haven where many graduates would be attending Yale, naturally (and an ad from Tiffany in NY, for "school pins" and other accoutrement). Royal blue linen, covers blind-ruled with title stamped in gilt front and back (Hothckiss title on front, logo for West & Co/ E.D. Hendee, Importers and Tailors, New Haven on rear), 93 pp. Near fine all around. Near Fine. Item #012045
