There is a specialist firm in New York City which has an
extensive inventory of books in the Italian language.
It is predominantly a mail order business, as well:
S. F. Vanni
30 West 12th Street
New York, NY 10011-8691
Telephone - 212 675-6336
A second possible source is the United Nations Book Shop,
a store which has recently begun advertising its international
book special-order service on the radio.
You may telephone them at 212 963-8348.
Powell's Books, while not specializing in either Italian books or Mail
order sales, does have an extremely large selection which includes
many books in Italian and they do ship, even internationally.
Powell's City of Books (main store)
1005 W Burnside, 503-228-4651
One of the wonders of Portland. Powell's has new and used books by
the millions. Its depth and coverage exceeds most large-city libraries.
Also, if you are looking for Italian books in English
translations, you can contact Italica Press. You can ask for a
catalog at the following address:
Italica Press, Inc.
