A lavishly illustrated account of the history and present day activities of the great London clubs, some dating back to the 17th Century. Redolent of more leisured times, where the aristocracy, military figures, politicians and more recently a wider society, including ladies, meet to eat, converse or simply read the papers in congenial surroundings. A lovely look beside the grand facades, a glimpse of a lifestyle to which I could easily adapt! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0880290234, Hardcover)

London is the mother city of clubs. There are famous clubs in many other cities around the world, but they all owe a debt to those original clubs of St. James's Streetand Pall Mall; clubs which were designed to suit the life-style of the English gentleman; clubs which have played a significant roll in the social and political histroy of Britain. For those who have never stepped inside clubland's marble halls, there will be many revelations. For clubmen themselves, this is a volume to treasure.
