A Savage Club Souvenir
Privately Printed, 1916. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. xv, 244.8vo,,Bound in original woven gray-green cloth with gilt emblem,According to Andrew Halliday, who was elected a joint Honorary Secretary at the first annual meeting in 1858, 'The Savage Club was formed to supply the want which Dr. Samuel Johnson and his friends experienced when they founded the Literary Club. A little band of authors, journalists and artists felt the need of a place of reunion where, in their hours of leisure, they might gather together and enjoy each other's society, apart from the publicity of that which was known in Johnson's time as the coffee house, and equally apart from the chilling splendour of the modern club.' This edition, one of only 500 copies printed, 'brings together some brief recollections and sketches by members'. It is a scarce item, seldom seen in its original presentation, although now unfortunately available as one of those abominable print upon demand concoctions (lacking, no doubt, the many excellent illustrations which grace this volume). Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Boards sunned, with light wear to extremities. Binding a bit dry & sl. stressed. Contents unmarked. A good to good plus copy.
