Best place to catch up on Victorian novels and M.F.K. Fisher's gingerbread recipe (2008)


The treasures at NYU'S FALES LIBRARY more than justify the hoops through which you might have to jump just to gain access. The 106,000 volumes in the DeCoursey Fales collection of 19th-century English-language fiction include familiar authors in multiple editions and formats, as well as their less-loved contemporaries. And the Cecily Brownstone Collection of books on American cookery ranges from Our Digestion, or, My Jolly Friend's Secret by Dio Lewis (1872) to The Joy of Cooking.
