Club Men of New Orleans In Caricature

by William Keevil Patrick, 1917

The book  measures approximately 10 1/2" x 8 1/4". The name on the cover is is Clubmen of New Orleans in caricature. The name on the title page is Club Men of Louisiana in Caricature", drawings by W.K. Patrick, printed by the Roycrofters, East Aurora, NY, 1917, with a preface by the late Elbert Hubbard "Written shortly after his visit to New Orleans", leather covered wraps , featuring 354 caricatures of various New Orleans luminaries by the "Times-Picayune" cartoonist, with index . These books were generally presented to the persons whose caricatures appeared inside the book. It is not listed in McKenna and I have only  seen the two examples shown on this page. This book is a fairly uncommon title. Like the other clubmen books, because of the large size and frailty of the bindings relatively few of these have survived without damage.
