Fantastic foreign language section and a must see for book lovers - the store is abundantly filled with piles upon precarious piles of glorious books - ranging literally from floor to ceiling! Such an adventure!

This is my favorite used book store in New Orleans (I've been going there since about 1999 or so). The selection is super eclectic, and the prices are fair. But the ambiance makes this spot worth a stop by. The room is smaller than the physical space needed for the collection, so books spill out of the shelves and into tall stacks - columns of books standing high from the floor, on boxes, on the tops of shelves, so that they rise nearly to the high ceiling. Book stacks are both squeezed vertically and horizontally on the shelves. Books are quite literally everywhere you look - they're all old and obscure and dusty and climbing all over so that if you're not careful, you'll knock over a stack every time you move. For some reason he has a really good selection of foreign language novels (mostly Fr, Sp, and Gr), as well as an admirable western philosophy selection, decent fiction stack, and (for some reason) a bunch of throw-away sci-fi books. And he's a got a really bizarre pulley system that holds a large floor fan ten feet or so up above one of the aisles. So don't get decapitated. Can be hard to find, so do this: If you're standing in Jackson Square, looking at the cathedral, the book store is directly on the other side, two stores or so down the street behind the church. On the left.

So. Many. Books. I, literally, got lost in this shop as I'm a sucker for history and cook books. Plus, the selection of French and English books...

HEY YA'LL.. Russell you are "the man" and all I want are books about the French Foreign Legion in any language. A New Orleans Landmark. Greetings from Ecuador.

The quintessential used book shop with book treasures for everyone! Great selection of foreign and classical language, philosophy & theology, fiction, and local history. A necessary stop everytime we visit NOLA.
