"View of the New Jersey College, at Princeton, New Jersey"

This 19th century wood engraving was published as an illustration to Ballou's Pictorial Newspaper, a competitor to Harper's Weekly and Frank Leslie's Illustrated News. Founded in 1746 as the College of New Jersey, Princeton is one of the elite eight Ivy League Schools in the United States, educating scholars and scientists, presidents and diplomats, noble laureates and poets. Perfect gift for the Princeton Tiger!
