March 2 - May 15
The Grolier Club: Celebrating the Art & History of the Book Since 1884
Founded in 1884, the Grolier Club is America’s oldest and largest society for bibliophiles and enthusiasts in the graphic arts. Named for Jean Grolier (1489 or 90-1565), the Renaissance collector renowned for sharing his library with friends, the Club’s objective is to promote “the study, collecting, and appreciation of books and works on paper.” Through the hard work of an international network of over eight hundred men and women, the club pursues its mission through its library, its public exhibitions and lectures, and its long and distinguished series of publications. Network members include print collectors, antiquarian book dealers, librarians, designers, fine printers, binders, and other artisans.
Over its 136 year history, the organization has mounted more than 500 exhibitions. Topics have ranged from Blake to Kipling, from chess to murder mysteries, from Japanese prints to Art Nouveau posters.
