Description/Abstract

Another in the Courier's "From the Collector's Library" series, this article relates the history of the Wolcott Shop in Skaneateles, which sold rare books to famous collectors for years. Many of the rare books sought out had to do with Syracusan history, or were first editions of famous New York authors. The store had a certain grace and manner that is today exceedingly rare.
