Here’s a book from the late 1890s containing some short stories about the University of Pennsylvania by Arthur Hobson Quinn, one of the former Deans of The College. The motto under the title is from the Seal of the University Trustees and means “Learning (or Literature) without morals is in vain”. This, of course, is a re-wording of the University motto taken from the Roman poet Horace—“Leges sine moribus vanæ” (“Laws without morals are in vain”).
Below you will find a link to an amusing book review in "The Red & Blue" (which was a literary magazine that had survived up until a few years ago) followed by a link to the entire book on Google Books.
