About Us

Delanceyplace is a brief daily email with an excerpt or quote we view as interesting or noteworthy, offered with commentary to provide context. There is no theme, except that most excerpts will come from a non-fiction work, mainly works of history, and we hope will have a more universal relevance than simply the subject of the book from which they came. And there is not necessarily an endorsement, and in some cases an excerpt may be particularly controversial and we may disagree with some or all of it, but nevertheless deem it worth noting.

We hope that you will enjoy these. If not, simply follow the directions in the email to remove your name from our list. Please feel free to share Delanceyplace. We love new subscribers. To learn more about our founder Richard Vague and why he started please read the Letter to our Subscribers

We also welcome any comments or suggestions. You may send us your comments and suggestions by by clicking here and filling out the contact form or by sending an email to

All profits from Delanceyplace are donated to charity.

Thank you!

Richard Vague, Founder
