VISITING BOOKSTORES 

   Henry Bergos writes: "If we are gong to list non-numismatic 
   book stores, Strand cannot be left out.  Many of my books 
   are from there and when I dealt, some of my merchandise 
   was from there.  I used to get Breens there for $45 each. 
   It is on 4 Ave and 12 St. and on the net. When you come 
   MAKE SURE TO VISIT THE RARE BOOK ROOM 
   UPSTAIRS.  The only word of caution: come AFTER my 
   next visit...." 

   [Editor's note: Brooklyn-based Bergos is referring to Strand 
   Books, 828 Broadway at 12th.  One review from the web: 
   "With over two million new and used books and eight miles 
   of shelves, the Strand is the institution New York bibliophiles 
   love to hate and hate to love. 

   Visiting the Strand for the first -- or the thousandth -- time is 
   overwhelming. The towering stacks of nebulously organized 
   books hold treasures you never knew you desired. The 
   narrow, labyrinthine aisles are crowded with piles of not-yet- 
   shelved volumes and fellow booklovers to stumble over.  In 
   the summer, the lack of air conditioning makes you so delirious 
   that you will actually buy that completely unaffordable first 
   edition."  (from http://newyork.citysearch.com/)]
