The Fine in our name refers both to matters of condition (by and large, we only stock exceptional examples) and to the perspective we take on collecting. Our focus is on editions of aesthetic merit, whether for their bindings, typography, plates, or even dust-jacket art. From the hand-press period, we favor emblem books, poetry and architecture; titles drawn from the landmark exhibition "Printing & the Mind of Man;" and works on travel, the classical world, and landscape design, many with engravings and hand-colored maps. Our nineteenth-century holdings include early Baedekers, Dickens and Darwin in original cloth, Americana, and plate books with all 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 and Anthony Burgess.
