In the fifties, there were almost four hundred book shops in New York. Today there are less than a hundred. D.W. Young portraits the rare book business in the city in a changing moment. From the old shops and their clichés – men in tweed, avid readers guarded by book piles – and the more modern shops, with young booksellers, full of ideas that involve a more present interaction with the community.
