Occasionally Rare, Frequently Scarce, Always Fine

All is buxomness and books, and great love
and liking; for each loveth other
William Langland
Circa 1370

The two mottos go pretty much down the road in setting the tone for who we are. The culture of the book is alive and well here. This is a real brick and mortar bookstore lovingly appointed and stocked and given a world wide presence by the marvelous electronic revolution known as the Internet. Reality is very much in command, virtually without pause. On occasion, lunch, aperitifs, tea, are served to friends, collectors, purchasers of books and dealers as camaraderie is naturally made indelible by books, which, of course, go hand in hand with worthy comestibles.
