About this Item

This is the text of "an address given to the Philobiblon Club on 19 April, 1973." Whitehill, the former director and librarian of the Boston Athenaeum, begins by pointing to similarities between social organizations in Boston and Philadelphia and then gives a history of the Club of Odd Volumes, the Boston book collecting club founded in 1887. This brief history was printed in an edition of 250 copies at the Bird & Bull Press. The Press's bibliography says: "Title line and colophon [are printed] in Arrighi; the text [is] printed in Garamond type on Hodgkinson's Bird & Bull paper" and the wrappers are "Burnt Sienna roller-printed paste paper . . . [with the] title on [a] paper label on [the] upper cover." 8vo (23 cm; 9"). 13, [1 (colophon)] pp. Taylor & Morris, Twenty-one Years of Bird & Bull, B3. New.
