  • Small but worth the find. Even if not able to or interested in buying any rare books, this is like a literary museum. See first edition and rare masterpieces. See their history and maybe get to touch a favorite book or manuscript that impacted your life or something that has a childhood memory for you. I love seeing the early American documents and maps. Things used during the early wars for independence. To think that it lasted this long and was so important to our freedom. Also fun to see the original edition of books or movies we love before they were famous and mass produced. Some of the inscriptions from the authors to friends, family and fans help you understand the person behind the words.. .
  • I called they didn't have what I wanted however they gave me great advice on how to get it and were very polite!
  • This shop, located between the Venetian and the Palazzo, is not your ordinary antiquarian bookstore. The store is not huge, but their selection and collection is amazing. First-editions in pristine condition of Huckleberry Finn (green Webster binding) and Connecticut Yankee caught my eye. It's not just remarkable that they have the selection that they do... It's remarkable the condition that their books are in. As mentioned in other reviews, this is basically a museum-grade artifact store. The storekeepers are not pretentious though. A sign politely invites guests: "Ask us to show you how to handle antique books." Very dignified, and a much better approach than the typical book-Nazi approach that you would typically find in a store with their inventory. If your literature teacher in high school or college ever touched you, you owe it to him or her to stop in this store at least once if you are in the area.
  • The manager is a fox
  • I'm guessing that everything in here is overpriced. But its a fun store to stop in, and look at all the rare books and read the little blurbs about them.
