Generally speaking, unless a doctor is giving you a diagnosis, rare usually means better.
There’s a reason rarities are so valuable — they’re notoriously hard to find.
Not anymore. Add a sense of nostalgia to your literary collection with some one-of-a-kind volumes from High Valley Books. Running out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the shop carries a wide selection of rare and out-of-print editions specializing in fashion, design, and decorative arts. You’ll also find vintage copies of your favorite mags and photographers’ collections.
The storefront is open by appointment only, though with the launching of the website, the endless cache of collectibles is at your fingertips.
Never thought you needed an original copy of the 1965 cookbook Oh, for a French Wife!? Or a first edition of Fredericks of Hollywood 1947-1973: 26 Years of Mail Order Seduction? Maybe so — but once you start collecting these antiquated gems, you may never be able to stop.
Luckily, addiction is a disease you can live with.
