The Philobiblon Club

The Philobiblon Club of Philadelphia is finishing out its 118th year. We have a full slate of programs for the year, held the second Tuesday of each month, October through May. George Koppelman and Daniel Wechsler will speak on the provenance of an annotated Elizabethan dictionary (was it Shakespeare’s?) on October 14; James Tanis will discuss his extensive postcard collection (November 11), and David Szewczyk will talk about the collection of the College of Physicians (December 9).
On January 13 is the Annual Members' Meeting (bring something from your collection to tell us about), and a month later (February 10) Julie Nelson Davis will speak about Japanese books; Bradley Duncan will discuss radical literature on March 10; Alexander Ames will speak about Frakturschrift (April 14 ); and Cary Sternick on Peck's Bad Boy (May 12).
Meetings, which include dinner, are held at the Franklin Inn Club of Philadelphia. The Club welcomes visiting FABS members to attend its meetings whenever possible.  Contact club secretary Mark Darby (215-204-1040 or
