Western Sweater Vest
He invites me into his Midtown apartment one September afternoon.
I always thought it was rather more of an archive than a place to live, which was also what I liked most about it.
He lets me wander among rows and rows of bookcases filled floor-to-ceiling with books from the last five centuries. 20,000, maybe 30,000 in the collection. Plus antique maps, prints, taxidermy, all sorts of ephemera.
He’s wearing a chambray shirt under a vest I instantly covet.
It's not overly worn, but hardly new, either.
He tells me he traded for it in Taos. Gave up a dear copy of John Muir's The Boyhood of a Naturalist.
Says he has no regrets and won’t let me buy it off of him, either.
Luckily, I have my other sources.
