Fodor's Expert Review Bauman Rare Books
Housing an exquisite collection of first-edition titles in pristine condition, this antiquarian bookstore carries such classics as Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat, Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, and A Farewell to Arms, inscribed by Hemingway himself. A large-folio 1679 edition of the King James Bible contains meticulous engraved-plate illustrations, as does Ellen Willmott's rare first-edition printing of The Genus Rosa, with its full-page color pages of roses. Historical documents showcase the original signatures of Jung, Edison, and presidents Lincoln and FDR, among other notables. Special binding services are also offered.
