Gloria Books’ New York (www.glorialuxury.com), a 26-pound, 700-page, Italian-silk-bound volume enclosed in a crystal Lucite case, may not cover every feature of the city it honors, but it surely tries. The book’s 200,000 words and 1,500 images celebrate Gotham’s architecture, art, fashion, music, dance, sport, industry, and celebrated denizens and visitors. (The images, both from the early 1970s, show Robert Redford on the East Side and Marlon Brando in Chinatown.) Gloria has printed three different versions of the book, ranging in price from $2,500 to $15,000
