4081 Campa Lane, Ormond Beach, FL 32174 USA 386-236-9804

Bookstore derives from my nickname at Gotham Book Mart where I worked as manager & buyer for over thirty years. I will emphasize literature (English and translated), first editions, reference, scholarly, film & paperbacks (vintage,literary & series) and plan to issue catalogues & lists periodically. I've just completed a color-illus catalogue of my Greta Garbo collection. Future catalogues will feature pirates, vampires, historical fiction, baseball fiction, Russian lit, Viking Portables, English Romantics [reference], Dumas & Fellini; more down the line. Adding books constantly. Thanks. Stay tuned!
