- This is not a paperback parlor, nor is it a bargain book basement. At times Bartfields, with its delicate antique volumes, manuscripts and maps, will appear to be more of a museum or fine arts gallery than anything. This image is not accidental. The person is expected to be a serious collector or lover of the genre, if not an actual antiquarian. No one attempts to pull books out of the stacks on his own, but rather asks to have a specific book shown to her.
