We acquired the contents of a storage unit from this famous collection of printed material and all of it is for sale and everything must go!
World famous midtown Manhattan bookstore, Gotham Book Mart, a "New York literary haven of international stature" operated from 1920 to 2007.
Experts valued the collection at several million dollars and most of the store's inventory was sold at auction for $400,000 in 2007.
200,000 items from Gotham Book Mart were donated to the University of Pennsylvania in 2007 to Penn's Rare Book and Manuscript Library, known for its collection of antiquarian materials.
The collection included primarily modern and contemporary poetry and literature, but also including works on art, architecture, jewelry, music, dance and film, experimental literary magazines and books from small presses, including "outsider literature".
