The Jumble Club
The records of The Jumble Club, a group dedicated to playing whist (and *only* whist) which thrived in Glasgow, Scotland, approximately between 1799 and 1877.
The records consist of 4 ledgers containing minutes of meetings, with additional meeting minutes, inventories, insurance policy, checkbook. flyers and other related papers and ephemera.
And they came in a lovely metal coffer, complete with a set of keys, none of which fit the box lock.
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
