The Roxburghe Club was formed in San Francisco on April 3, 1928, and was named in honor of the original Roxburghe Club of England, a renowned bibliophilic society (itself named after the Duke of Roxburghe). Both the San Francisco and English clubs continue to be active. Much of the impetus for creating the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco was provided by Carl I. Wheat, historian, lawyer, and book collector. The purpose of the club was to further the love of fine printing and books in general. Loosely organized and led by The Master of the Press (club president), members included and continue to include book collectors and booksellers, fine book printers and binders.
