This tiny bookshop is meticulous and definitely a go-to for bibliophiles. It is not your run-of-the-mill scattered and disorganized local store run by a hermetic sociopath-- this man is a mad genius. 'WPA guides?' 'Look there, above, to the left.' 'Contract bridge?' 'Walk halfway up the stairs to the gaming section, the bottom shelf along with the chess books.' 'Old leather bound prints?' 'Check the toilette (literally).'
Not only does he have a wide array of old and out-of-print books, but they are categorized and organized into every crevice of this old house. The organization is an oddity to behold unto itself. The ends of bookcases and doorways get specially constructed narrow and shallow shelves. Built-ins are cut out above doorways and up staircases. There is effectively a crown molding of books in every room. You continue upstairs to find a reference library that doubles as a functioning bathroom. You get the distinct sense that this man lives with books and loves them.
It really is a sight to behold.
