Corso's ~ Les Livres, Spitalfields, London
 
You are seduced the moment you enter the shoppe ~ the rows of shelves, the stained
 glass lamps, the flickeringgaslights, the locked heavily carved wood cabinets 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.
