JANUARY 25-30 IS BIBLIOGRAPHY WEEK. "Bibliography Week" happens each year in New York City at the end of January when the principal national organizations devoted to book history have their annual meetings. Other groups plan interesting events, too, since so many bibliophiles are in town. Some events are open to members only, but mostly you are encouraged to show up everywhere: get a sense of what is going on in the book world, hear some interesting papers, schmooze over cocktails ...

OPENING NOVEMBER 19 IN OUR SECOND FLOOR GALLERY: "Illustrated by Lynd Ward, From the Collection of Robert Dance. The visionary artistry of Lynd Ward, one of America’s foremost book illustrators during the first half of the twentieth century, is on view at the Grolier Club from November 19, 2015 through January 16, 2016. The exhibition, the first one-person show in New York City to present an overview of Ward's remarkable achievements, includes more than 60 artworks that reveal the range of Ward’s graphic accomplishments. Ward is primarily known for his “wordless novels,” precursors to today’s graphic novel. However, also significant, and relatively under-appreciated, are his illustrations in other media: wood engraving, lithography, and mezzotint, as well as brush drawings, line drawings, watercolors and paintings for more than 200 books.

GALLERY HOURS: Monday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm. The Club will be closed on Thursday November 26 and Friday November 27 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

THE TRANSACTIONS OF THE GROLIER CLUB AND GAZETTE OF THE GROLIER CLUB NOW DIGITIZED AND SEARCHABLE ONLINE. The Transactions of the Grolier Club (1885-1919), and its successor journal The Gazette of the Grolier Club (1921 to date), have documented the activities of America’s oldest and largest society of book lovers for over 130 years. Thanks to a generous grant from Pine Tree Foundation, a full run of The Transactions, and a run of The Gazette from its inception through 2009, have been digitized and made searchable online, free of charge, via New York Heritage, a research portal for students, educators, historians, genealogists, and others interested in learning about the people, places and institutions of New York State. The collection is available here
