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

. Hours: Mon-Thu 10am-6pm Fri 9am-5pm Appointments are necessary to consult manuscript and archival materials.
