    Excerpt from Club-Land: London and Provincial If the ancient Lacedemonians invented clubs, the modern English may take the credit of having perfected them. There are in London to-day a hundred clubs which meet in their own houses. How many others may be leading precarious lives in hotels and taverns it would be difficult to say. In no city in Europe or America are these organisations administered on such strict principles as are deemed necessary in Great Britain. An Englishman's club for the time being is his private house. The members represent his family and friends. Strangers excluded from the club-rooms proper are relegated to apartments which have little or no communication with the members' rooms. Whereas in America a visitor properly introduced has the full run of a club, in England he is essentially a stranger. The election of members is conducted upon the most exacting principles, and candidates are sometimes not elected until many years after they are proposed. In the oldest and most exclusive clubs members are said to nominate their sons and heirs on the day of their birth. That there is nothing new under the sun is remarkably illustrated in the history of an English club. The feasts of love or public repasts of the days of Lycurgus (as related by Plutarch) were the beginnings of the modern club, which is conducted to-day very much upon the ancient lines. For example the Lacedemonians made up companies of fifteen, and each of them brought contributions of wine, cheese, fish and fruit. It was customary, on the arrival of members, for the oldest among them to stand at the portal and warn his brethren that not a word said within the precincts must be repeated outside. Each candidate for admission was balloted for. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
