Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

A Souvenir of Montparnasse?

Another refugee from John Glassco's library, purchased a couple of decades ago from a Montreal bookseller, this third volume of Œuvres Illustrées de Balzac (Paris: Michel Lévy Frères, 1867) appears to have been the oldest book in his collection. Glassco's signature matches those found on correspondence dating from his time in Montparnasse (and is dissimilar to those on later documents).
