Williams College 1841-42 Catalogue

Catalogue of the Corporation, Officers and Students of Williams College, 1841-2. [Pages 3 and 5 are missing from this copy]

The Lectures in Astronomy are accompanied by celestial observations, and instructions in the use of instruments. An Observatory, lately erected, supplies important facilities for these purposes. The Philosophical and Chemical Apparatus has been recently enlarged by the Alumni, at an expense of several thousand dollars, and the Lectures on Mineralogy are illustrated by a well selected and extensive cabinet. An anatomical figure by Dr Auzoux, fully illustrating the parts of the human frame, has also recently been obtained.
