This is a bookstore built around the collection of Mike Eagle
(1926-1994)the renowned Greenwich Village bookseller, artist and WWII veteran.
For most of the years of the Beat Generation Mike was set up on Seventh Ave
just south of Sheridan Square then for ten years on West Fourth Street in a
basement space. There are many broadsides and autographed short run editions
of poetry from the period.
The collections are mostly out of print books and magazines with emphasis on politics, mysticism, religion, literature, history, art, philosophy, occult, science fiction and erotica. Books, periodicals records and ephemera will be offered.
The process of listing the whole collection will take a while. The titles you will find here are generally important and often scarce, their conditions vary, few have dust jackets, many are well read as they deserve to be. We want to keep this knowledge alive and will be looking for loving homes for all.
We will do our best to accurately describe our listings and price them within reach of the avid reader. In the of scarce, rare and dear editions appointments will be considered.
All items will be shipped and insured at buyers expense, applicable
taxes applied. Prices are set at approximate market value, reasonable offers
will be considered.
In hopes of adding to the intelligence of our times you are invited to peruse and enjoy the perspectives our collections afford. Thank you for visiting. Peace.
