Founded in 1939 in Sacramento

The general purpose of the Club is to promote interest in the printed word and, from time to time, publish such books, pamphlets and other forms of printing which reflect member interest. Since its first publication in 1942, the Club has published eighteen books, including two incunabulum leaf books and scores of special publications and keepsakes printed by Club members. In its issue of scholarly and popular material, the Club's publications rank as fine printing and at least four of them have received national recognition for outstanding graphics achievements. Its publications, all in limited editions, are regarded as collector's items, and its earlier publications are scarce and demand high prices in bookstores. Most club publications are out of print. . An archive of Club publications, keepsakes, and meeting minutes is at the California State Library
