1862-1863 Catalogue of Lane Theological Seminary at Walnut Hills, Ohio near Cincinnati

1862-1863 Catalogue of the Officers and Students of Lane Theological Seminary, printed at Cincinnati, Ohio by Johnson, Stephens & Company, Steam Printers, No. 141 Main Street, Below Fourth, 1863 [perhaps a second printing for the spring term?]

See another post that features the 1866-67 catalog of Lane Theological Seminary.  

Read about Lane Theological Seminary on wikipedia.  

In the catalog, Lane Theological Seminary's location, Walnut Hills, was described as "a few rods north of the limits of Cincinnati, and within two miles of the heart of the city".  

The catalogue is a booklet composed of an outside cover and eight pages and measures approximately 9-1/4" x 5-3/4".  

The back cover, shown just below, was used as an address page, in order to mail the catalogue to Professor William Henry Parker at Middlebury College in Vermont.  The catalogue was mailed from Mason, West Virginia, on May 28, I assume 1863.

The title page, below, is a replica of the front cover.
