You'll notice some new bibliography listings, the Friends tab above, and a new video post from earlier today.
Send in anything relating to Count St.Germain!
I've noticed a few references to the Count being part of the British Kit-Cat Club. The club met in various locations in and out of London. I found that Bloomsbury Bytes provides some good information, including this little tidbit:
“It was a rule of the club that members should have their portraits
painted. Jacob Tonson, the famous bookseller, created the club and
became its secretary. He made it a weekly gathering of litterateurs,
whom he entertained with pies, making it a condition that his guests
should sell him their manuscripts. Jonson started the portraiture and
had his own picture painted by Sir Godfrey Kneller, the rest following
suit. Jonson built a picture gallery as an addition to his villa at Barn
Elms. The room was not large enough to take in half-length canvases,
and a special size of portrait was invented, 36 inches by 28 inches, and
the club became the sponsor of the Kit-Kat canvas, the name which still survives.” (Griffiths, p. 15).
I'm going to start looking for a portrait and possibly some writings.
