Class of 1840.
A copy of a book printed as a record of the members of the class of 1840 has recently been presented to the State Library of Massachusetts. Only two other copies of this volume were printed; one of which is in the Harvard Library, and the other in the possession of a member of the class. The book was planned after the fiftieth anniversary of the class at the suggestion of one of the members. The idea was carried through by private enterprise and in 1895 the three copies of the book were printed in London. It contains photographs of the members of the class and a life sketch of each.
