Benjamin Franklin, founder of America's first university, the University of Pennsylvania, hoped that its students would learn "everything that is useful and everything that is ornamental."

The guide presents architectural walks of a campus that is distinguished by landmark buildings. Thomas traces the university's rich history from its founding in 1749 to the present wave of construction on the modern campus. Hand-colored maps and detailed descriptions of the buildings guide to readers on their tour.
