The Mysterious Bookshop

Ellin, Stanley, The Key to Nicholas Street

 Ellin, Stanley, The Key to Nicholas Street, N.Y., Simon & Schuster, 1952. First edition of this undervalued author’s second book, and the most difficult to locate in collectable condition. Neat rubber stamp on front endpaper, else very good-near fine in dust jacket, which has a very small chip at rear hinge and two nearly invisible closed tears. 


We are devoted to all things mysterious, from hard-boiled hardcovers to pulpy paperbacks, suspected signings and whispers around town.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm. 212.587.1011
