Bibliophile Society of Rochester

About Club

The Bibliophile Society is a diverse group of people. Some of us are serious collectors of first editions or of finely printed, bound or illustrated books; others are more modest or haphazard collectors of “finds” from garage sales, flea markets, or second-hand shops. And some of us aren’t even collectors but enjoy being around interesting books and book lovers. More than anything, our mission is our motto ~ "Good Books, Good Friends."

Our meetings cover a wide range of subjects. Past programs have included talks on literary figures such as Jane Austen, Gilbert & Sullivan, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. and topics include: the history of bookbinding, buying books on the Internet, collecting Modern Library editions. We have also had field trips to RIT’s Printing School, Eastman House, University of Rochester’s Department of Rare Books & Special Collections and to the library at Cornell University. Feel free to explore our site and please come to one of our meetings.
