Finely bound poem by Henry Dwight Sedgwick, Harvard class of 1882, written on the occasion of his 60th anniversary class reunion celebrated at the Algonquin Club, June 11, 1942. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to Harvard classmate, Charles Walker Andrews, with a quotation in Latin from Horace. Tipped in are two letters from Sedgwick to Andrews, and a manuscript list in Andrews' hand of those who attended the dinner, above which he notes that there were 34 from the class still alive and 19 at the dinner. Andrews' bookplate on the front paste-down. Andrews (1861- c1945) was a Syracuse, NY, attorney and active book collector; he was a member of the Grolier Club from 1902 to 1938.
