Some 30,000 art books, exhibition catalogues, ephemera, and periodicals fill the shelves and files and map case in our newly visible office in downtown La Jolla. We carry mainly modern and contemporary material in all languages. Visitors are most welcome, but an appointment is strongly recommended to avoid disappointment on both sides. Two other antiquarians, D. G. Wills and ABAA member Barry Ruderman, are a few blocks away, next door to a bohemian neighborhood coffee shop. Good restaurants abound. Unexpected cultural treats include a superb private map museum and a subscription library -- the Athenaeum -- specializing in music and art, with a rich collection of modern artists' books and regular art exhibitions and concerts. Then there is the ocean. And the weather. For the source of our logo, please see About; at www.mcgilvery.com. The photograph is a detail from Eleanor Antin's Angel of Mercy (1977), a performance based on the life of Florence Nightingale and photographed by Phel Steinmetz.
