7/23/2014. Meet Peter, owner of The Book Scout, vintage photography books a specialty — 126 Main Street, Greenport, New York 11944 (631) 477-8536. Peter is 79, and was born in 1935. For a few years in the late 50’s - early 60’s he worked as a photographer’s assistant in New York City. He’s very knowledgeable. If you’re in the market for an old inspiring photo book, perhaps from the collection of a known master (no longer with us), then give Peter a call and see what he has in stock. He’ll be happy to recommend something. Of course if you find yourself on the North Fork of Long Island, wine country, then you can drop-in.
