Date of publication unknown, but based on the address and lack of a zip code, most likely pre-1964. Interesting look at books and their prices in the mid-20th century. The Argosy Book Store was founded in 1925 by Louis Cohen and moved from its original location on Fourth Ave in “Book Row” to 114 E. 59th Street, NYC, in the 1930s. It moved to 116 E. 59th Street, its current location around 1964. The book store remains in New York and is still owned and run by the family.
