We were looking for children's books about Egypt to bring home, a good Luxor tomb and temple guide, and an Egyptian cookbook. There was choice in all three and so much more besides.

We were looking for historical books about Egypt and photography books as well. We found a good choice of both here. The owner is very friendly and as I was told, it's a family library which would have begun in the '40.

Stocking books in most European languages and a good deal cheaper than you'll find them at home. Not just "coffee table" or picture books but academic. Highly recommended and with a great selection of post cards too. You are welcome to browse and offered tea.
