Gorgeous Book of War Poetry – Just In

The find of the day -we’ve come across this amazing 1919 edition of Louis Golding’s ‘Sorrow of War’.     Golding went on to a very distinguished literary career, best known for his novel Magnolia Street, published in 1932.   He’s pretty much forgotten now, which is a shame.  But not at The Society Club – we’re thrilled to have this book in-stock.

New in the Shop: Contemporary French Poetry from 1912

Today I priced our new selection of rare books, including this gorgeous hardback edition of Contemporary French Poets published in 1912.   Including poets Arthur Rimbaud and Albert Samain.

“I turned silences and nights into words. What was unutterable, I wrote down. I made the whirling world stand still.”
-Arthur Rimbaud

New at the shop

A new feature – I’ll highlight items that have recently gone on-sale at The Society Club.   Besides all the gorgeous books, art, photography, prints, tea, coffee, cakes and crumpets – we have a nice and sometimes odd collection of bits – including Constance Spry vases and Coronation Glass Plates …

Today, this gorgeous 1953 Coronation Glass Ashtray arrived.   It’ll make a brilliant gift for someone.  It’s hard to find great ashtray’s these days!  Especially ones with The Queen on them.
