THE CAXTON CLUB
Excerpts from Web Page:
The Caxton Club of Chicago was founded in 1895 by fifteen Chicago bibliophiles who desired to support the publication of fine books in the spirit of the prevailing Arts and Crafts Movement.
The founders were collectors, publishers, designers, and librarians. Their primary objective in forming the Caxton Club was to publish books of quality, both in content and design, primarily for their own personal libraries.
The founders also had three secondary objectives: to have Club rooms where they could escape from the day-to-day exigencies of family and the business world; to hold exhibitions for the edification of family, friends, and the general public, as well as for the
members; and to form a library of reference material about books.
During the early years, excellent progress was made in meeting all the objectives. From 1899 to 1918, the Caxton Club maintained private club rooms in the heart of Chicago’s growing cultural community, on the tenth floor of the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Avenue. There members met, held exhibitions of books and prints from their personal and other collections, and browsed in the club library. An occasional luncheon was held in conjunction with the lectures that accompanied the opening of the exhibitions. In later years, financial difficulties forced the Club to forgo club rooms, regular exhibitions, and the library.
