Kozy Books appeared in 1960, with the first editorial offices being located at: 88 Franklin Street, New York 13, New York.   Soon after, the operation was moved out of NYC to 39 Orchard Street, Manhasset, Long Island, New York.  Kozy Books presented a great number of Orrie Hitt books (including those written under his pseudonyms Kay Addams and Nicky Weaver), works by Jack Matcha, Adam Snavely, Jonathan Ward, and others.
The cover art on the Kozy books was generally quite appealing -- and graphically worthy of note -- primarily for its interplay between the figures and flat patches of background and/ or foreground patterns or planes. In that way, the Kozy covers brought to mind modern collage art and to a lesser degree the two-dimensional "flatness" of Japanese prints.    I regret that I don't know who the KOZY artists were, so if any collectors or afficionados care to write in, I will appreciate the information!

Be sure to cross-check the "Writers" and "Artists" and "Themes" areas also!  
New books will be added as they become available.  

   

Here's the ever-growing catalog selection of KOZY BOOKS. 

Books available are priced.   I have not gotten a chance to read any of these, but am curious.   So, if you have read any of these books, I invite you to send in any plot summaries and/or thoughts, background info and details -- all are welcome!.  With your permission I will post your submissions anonymously or with appropriate credits.  
   Enjoy!

How to order

This is a self-made website and while it might be extensive, it is not super-sophisticated.  The little buy icon icon takes you to a generic order form where you can type in the author, title, price, and indicate whether you would like to send me a check, money order or credit card payment.  I will confirm availability via e-mail, and once I've received payment, I'll ship the book.  If you have questions,  please don't hesitate to ask  via email.

Condition Grades

There's a standard bookseller vocabulary, with terms like Fine, Very Good, Good and Poor to assess condition (to see these terms defined, click on the link above).  Most of my books are in Very Good or better condition, and I tend to overemphasize their flaws so that any surprise is a pleasant one.  Feel free to ask questions, and if the book isn't in the condition described, you may return it for a full refund. 

Wants Lists

If I don't have the book you seek in stock, I will retain your book search in my wants files and email you when I do have a copy for sale. If you don't hear back from me immediately, that probably means I don't have a copy right now.  But fear not,  I keep extensive files and never stop looking....  so send me your request;  you've got nothing to lose!

Not listed?
Not everything is listed on-line. Let me know what you're looking for.
