Titel: The Club of 'Nobody's Friends' 1800-2000 : A...
Verlag: Pentland Press, Edinburgh, first edition, 2000
Cloth, 8vo, 22 cm, viii, 132 pp, ills. "The larger part of the material for this short history of the Club of Nobody's Friends has been drawn from the original minute books of the Club together with the series of biographical memoirs compiled in three volumes: the first by George Edward Cockayne, Secretary of the Club from 1869 to 1884; the second by the Hon. Vicary Gibbs, Secretary of the Club from 1889 to 1923; and the third (completed by John Murray) by Chancellor Robert Nesbitt, Secretary of the Club from 1937 to 1944. The involvement of so many distinguished in Church and State makes Nobody's Friends a remarkable institution and meeting place. Its very title indicates its character. If more space has been devoted to its Founder, William Stevens, and its earlier years, this is because it is in some ways a time of greater interest, and also because as the history is carried up to the present day it becomes difficult to do more than note some of those elected to membership." - from the preface.
