We're excited to take Books Tell You Why on the road this week! We're heading to the 52nd Annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory, April 12 - 15. Stop by Booth #A-22 to peruse our offerings.

For a sneak peek at what we'll be bringing, check out the website. The selection includes outstanding items from our inventory in a wide variety of genres, such as fine press and modern first editions. You'll also find works by many legendary authors from Charles Dickens to Umberto Eco, some rather rare J.R.R. Tolkien titles (e.g., The Songs for the Philologists), a small collection of signed Dalai Lama titles.  A handwritten fire log of the New York Fire Department from 1889.  Items are subject to prior sale, so advance reservation is suggested.

If you have questions about items, feel free to contact us! We look forward to seeing many of you in person.
