About the Club
Founded in 1892, The Rowfant Club is a highly active bibliophilic society of Cleveland, Ohio. We are dedicated to the love of books in all their capacities to please the mind of man. This includes their ideas and content, the artistry of their design and construction, and their value as collectibles. Accordingly, we have a library of well-loved books in our house, which is believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited residential structure in Cleveland.
Light Seeking Light Doth Light Of Light Beguile is our motto, and is a quote from Shakespeare, in Act I Scene i, of Love’s Labour’s Lost. Those seeking the light of knowledge that books provide will join together in fellowship. This fellowship of bibliophiles provides us with our core.
