Directions to Flips Fine Books

Bookstore derives from my nickname at Gotham Book Mart where I worked for over thirty years. I will emphasize literature (English and translated), first editions, reference, scholarly & trade paperback series of the 50's & 60's and plan to issue catalogues & lists periodically. I've completed color-illus catalogues of Greta Garbo, Jorge Luis Borges and Paul Bowles. Future catalogues will feature pirates, historical fiction, Viking Portables, Fellini & Latin American Lit; more down the line. Inquiries welcome. Adding books constantly. Thanks. Stay tuned!
