This scarce privately printed membership log of legendary nightclub El Morocco documents its many famous members, including Cary Grant, Douglas Fairbanks, Franklin Roosevelt, and other notables. the index is keyed to each page and the captioned portrait photographs. John Perona commissioned and published the book for El Morocco regulars. As Lucius Beebe writes in the introduction, "Anyway, this book is a parade of People Who Count." The book's endpapers pay tribute to the famed zebra-stripe motif designed by Vernon MacFarlane.
