I get such feeling like watching very old English movie, you walk down the stairs passing through a small wooden door, and when you enter you'll see TONES and TONES of books. Unfortunately they don't allow us to take photos lolMore

Such a lovely bookstore - lots of first editions. If you've read the Vanity Fair article then you'll know what a treat of a place this is. Good luck to all who run it.
