Where is address book data located?

I recently had the hard drive go bad in my iMac, it wouldn't boot up so I opened the Mac up and replaced it. If I plug the old/failed hard drive in via USB using an adapter I seem to be able to access the data on the drive.

Does anyone know how I can access my address book data off the failed drive so as to be able to then import it into the right folder in the new drive? The failed drive has snow leopard on it.

Many thanks for any pointers.
