For any Adirondack history nerds out there, I stumbled upon this shop yesterday while searching for a specific title.

http://www.rare-books.com/adirondacks

I ordered a book from them, and we'll see how it goes. Seems legit enough. If it's not, I'm a fool parted with $20. If it's as it claims, it has some interesting stuff.

Update - this place is 100%. Got my book. I think it was actually new, I thought it was going to be used. Better than expected.

I have zero affiliation, but I'm a fan - I'll be back.

I?m glad you posted this. I fondly remember shopping the brick and mortar version of this store on Jay Street in Schenectady in the 80s. It was a great place to browse and I still have an autographed copy of The Adirondacks: a Special World, a collection of photographs of the park by Bill Healy, the owner of the store. I had no idea the business still existed.
