Comments: A tight, bright set. "...Harriet Martineau landed in New York on September 19, 1834. ... Society in America is a synthesis and an interpretation of Martineau's impressions organized in topical fashion with the subject matter divided into four major parts: politics, economy, civilization and religion. ... Miss Martineau spent six months in the South. ... An outspoken opponent of slavery, Martineau devotes much space to this question." Clark III, 205. Howes M-350.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
