  • We stumbled on the store in the Grand Canal Shoppes, and we were rapt! We see Rebecca doing appraisals on Gold and Silver Pawn, so were pleased to find this wee gem. Unfortunately, Rebecca wasn't in, ...  more »

  • This is a real treat. Always interesting items and the pricing runs such a pleasant range - you can spend a little or a lot, but either way its a fine place to leave some of your time.  more »

  • 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!
  • I love this place, a rare place for rare people like myself who love old books.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
