ROCHESTER UNIVERSITY. - Grand Exhibition of Rochester University Pet Animals, at Corinthian Hall, Friday Evening, December 4 1868.

Paris, Hicockalorum Bros., Printers [presumably Rochester NY, 1868]. Four pages quarto, wood engraved illustrations on all pages. A bit used with old horizontal folds; a pretty good survival. ¶ A cute student romp which presumably meant a lot if you happened to be there - it may still mean a lot to historians of the university. This is the programme for a circus performance in which parades a series of exotic and musical creatures - the White-Whiskered Execrable Woodchuck (a squeak, pianissimo); the Almighty Conceited Rhi-Nasti-Cuss (an egostical snort) and so on. The Sequel to Serenading Female Seminaries is intriguing; June 13, 1867 is doubtless marked somewhere in the university or police annals. Rochester despite (or because of) being a hotbed of feminism allowed women to attend Saturday lectures only from the late seventies and kept its university staunchly male until 1900. I find no mention of this in any library catalogue I could get at including the Rochester University Library catalogue.
