About Us

Argosy Book Store, founded in 1925, is now in its third generation of family ownership. Our enormous stock of antiquarian and out-of-print items fills a six-floor building in midtown Manhattan and a large warehouse in Brooklyn. We specialize in Americana, modern first editions, autographs, art, antique maps & prints, and the history of science & medicine. We also have thousands of books in all other fields of interest. We are founding members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, and we belong to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and the Appraisers Association of America.

We specialize in finding fantastic and unusual gifts for every fantastic and unusual person in your life. Need a great gift for a wedding? We have hundreds of appropriate prints and books to choose from. Need something for your doctor or lawyer? No problem. How about your teacher? Spiritual advisor? Plumber? Baseball coach? Mother-in-law? We'll help you find something -- or you can just pick up a gift certificate.
