Argosy Book Store

Village Voice's Description
Elegant and expensive, Argosy invites you to regard books as pure objects. Check out the 16th-and-17th-century collection for Latin breviaries small as piano keys.

You can make an appointment to be taken to the rare books on the 5th floor in an old, man-operated elevator.
2nd floor maps and pictures are amazing.
Quality old fashioned book store! Be sure to check out the basement.
