Corso's ~ Les Livres, Spitalfields, London
 
You are seduced the moment you enter the stoppe ~ the rows of shelves, thestained glass lamps, the flickering
gaslights, the locked heavily carved woodcabinets with beveled glass so you can see the most rare and
choice volumes. The place is filled with the incense of majick. Searches can be acquired,for a price. Mr. Corso
is currently on an extended research and buying trip in Europe, but the sisters Dupres, Madeleine and Marais,
will cordially welcome you and be of utter assistance. Hours are flexible.
