Condición del libro: Fine
[New Haven]: Yale University Press, 1929. ,113pp., plus portrait and nine plates. Original blue cloth, gilt. The lightest touch of shelfwear at the spine ends and corners, else fine. Untrimmed and unopened. First edition. Biography of John William Sterling, a prominent attorney and a major benefactor of Yale University. Sterling graduated in the Yale class of 1864, and became a founder of the law firm of Shearman and Sterling, representing clients such as Jay Gould, James Fisk, the Rockefellers, and Standard Oil. When he died in 1918 he left an estate of $18 million to Yale, which built the Sterling Memorial Library (the main undergraduate library at Yale), law school buildings, and Trumbull College, and also endowed several professorships. Recently, some scholars and gay activists have held up Sterling, who never married, as an example of a gay life in Victorian America. A difficult book to find in nice condition, as here.
