Background
Established in 1812 by bibliophiles of the United Kingdom, the Roxburghe Club has dedicated itself to the reproduction and collection of unpublished or rare works, as well as the general appreciation for printing. The Roxburghe Club was populated by nobility and scholars at the dawn of the Romantic period, during which "bibliomania" and literary collections became widely popular.
