This gold-stamped volume, beautifully printed on letterpress, was published to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of Saint Joseph's College/University. It begins with the arrival of the first Jesuits to Philadelphia in 1731 and the establishment of Old St. Joseph's, the first Catholic church in the city. It continues through the founding of Saint Joseph's College/University in 1851 at Old St. Joseph's Church on that same plot of land within sight of Philadelphia's Independence Hall.

Several unopened cartons of this collector's volume were recently discovered in absolutely mint condition, each book still in its original wrapping and mailing box.


Author: Francis X. Talbot, S.J., Editor-in-Chief of America, 1923-44; Founding editor of Thought, 1926; and President/Rector of Loyola University, Baltimore, 1947-50.
