Argosy Book Store: Old and Rare Books

Love this, can I bare to do it with some of my precious collection?

I always find fun and unexpected things in New York City and my most recent trip was no exception. I stumbled upon the Argosy Book Store that features old and rare books. They had an excellent collection of interesting documents and illustration from books as well as fun bins of star autographs starting at $10 (Erik Estrada or Barbie Benton, anyone?).  The fancy books, autographs and documents are upstairs, but there is quite a used book playground downstairs...

The crime fiction section was small but many mystery/thriller authors (Tony Hillerman, Agatha Christie, Ellery Queen, etc.) were filed in the large fiction section. 

Located on E. 59th between Park and Lexington.
