In the spirit of our successful Not San Francisco Book Fair Book List, we are offering a similar effort for New York. That is to say, we won’t be exhibiting at the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, but if we were, these are some of the books we’d bring.

And, on the publication of this opus, I’d like to inject a personal note on behalf of Joe, Amanda, and myself – Can’t believe we made it to our 200th catalog… whew!

The Fine Print - Books are in Good to Very Good antiquarian condition unless stated otherwise. Ink signatures and bookplates not noted unless they significantly mar the appearance of the book. Postage is $5.00 first book, $2.00 each additional book inside U.S. Other orders will be billed at cost. All domestic shipments are insured.

We recommend ordering by email, since queries are processed in the order in which they are received, whereas phone messages may not be picked up immediately if we happen to be out of the office. Orders may be left any time. For a live answer try calling 978 283 5299 between 12 and 5 daily, Mon.-Sat. When leaving a message please give the item numbers you desire and your phone number. No response to a message left on our machine means prior sale.

Payment - We accept MC, Visa, PayPal, check or money order. WE DO NOT RETAIN CREDIT CARD NUMBERS, so if your are paying by MC or Visa you’ll have to provide that information. (Our answering machine at 978 283 5299 is secure.)

We will ship and bill prior customers and institutions. New customers and overseas orders are requested to pay with order in U.S. dollars or upon receipt of a pro forma invoice.

Domestic postage is $5 for the first book, $2 for each thereafter. Oversize packages and international shipments will be billed at cost. We accept PayPal, Mastercard and Visa, but we do NOT retain credit card information, so if you wish to pay in this manner you must furnish credit card information by email to tenpound@tenpound.com or telephone to 978 283 5299.
