Description
Ephemera and correspondence related to Ye Sette of Odd Volumes from the collections of Ralph Straus and John Hassall. The majority of material is printed ephemera related to Odd Volumes meetings and activities, but there is also a substantial amount of correspondence written to John Hassall, as well as a manuscript notebook of minutes kept during meetings from 1919-1921.
Background
Ye Sette of Odd Volumes was a London-based bibliophilic club, begun in 1878 by bookseller Bernard Quaritch. The Sette's members included a wide-ranging cross-section of notable men, including literary figures, artists, scientists, politicians, businessmen and eccentrics. The original Sette petered out at the outbreak of World War II in 1939, but rebanded in 1950 with a new group of members.
