The Elizabethan Club of Yale University and Its Library was first published in 1986 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Elizabethan Club. This second, greatly enlarged edition is being published in celebration of the Club's centenary.

This edition includes full descriptions of the rare books in the Elizabethan Club's collection, including the nearly sixty new acquisitions of the past quarter century, and for the first time a listing of manuscripts and objects. Full-color photographs by Richard Cheek elegantly display the Club's rooms and garden, and nearly all its rare books, manuscripts, and objects are beautifully presented in full-color reproductions.

Stephen Parks is Curator (retired) of the Osborn Collection at the Beinecke Library and Librarian and Chairman of the Incorporators of the Elizabethan Club.

“For any[one] with an interest in the Elizabethan age or Shakespeare, [the book] would be quite a lovely addition to their library.”—Fine Books and Collections
