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.
I *Just* got the books. Satisfied is way too common a word. Superlative is way to low to describe the condition of the books. I am astonished! You have under-graded their condition. They are "As New", they have never been read! I have been collecting books for some 40 years. There is no remnant of thumbing through the pages. The spines are mint, and the covers and corners are immaculate. I am grateful to you for the low cost of these volumes, and they shall be well read (except for the Latin passages, at least until I have gained some fluency in that as-of-yet unexplored language, though I have a passing acquaintance with it). You have gained a life long client! Many thanks for the great pack job, as the USPS was none to gentle with the box. It was somewhat "ventilated" when they put it on my doorstep. But the books held up very very well. Sincerely Yours,
