The 'Fine' in our name refers both to the matter of condition (with few exceptions, we only stock exceptional examples) and to the perspective we take on collecting. Our focus is on editions of aesthetic merit, whether because of their bindings, typography, plates, or even dust-jacket art. From the hand-press period, we favor emblem books, poetry and prose; titles drawn from the landmark exhibition, Printing & the Mind of Man; and works on travel, the classical world, and landscape design, many with hand-colored engravings and maps. Our nineteenth-century holdings include early Baedekers and Americana and plate books with all genres and styles of illustration. Finally, in the area of modern firsts, the slant is toward literary high spots, often drawn from the lists compiled by Cyril Connolly (The Modern Movement) and Anthony Burgess (99 Novels) and from the Time 100. Please visit often, in search of rare, unusual, and fine editions from five centuries.
