The prints in the Jay T. Last Collection of Views consist of over 190 mostly lithographic prints depicting physical locales
primarily in the United States.
These images date from 1824 to 1913, with the bulk of the items dating between 1840 and 1890, and include town and city views;
pictorial maps and plans; landscapes and waterscapes;
scenes of rural and wilderness areas; commercial and residential streets and individual buildings and structures; parks, bridges,
and monuments; and a small number of interior views.

the study of nineteenth and early twentieth century
