One of a pair of views of Harvard College originally drawn and painted in oil on canvas by Alvan Fisher. This view was engraved by Annin & Smith for Boston-based Cummings, Hilliard & Company, May 1, 1823. It is inscribed "Fisher pinx" and "Annin & Smith Sc" with the names of each building on the lower margin. This was the first occasion for Holworthy Hall to appear in print, as it had just opened for students a few years before.
