This is an amazing book store and the used/remaindered books downstairs are the best value I've seen anywhere in the world. Half price for barely used titles. Worth a trip to Cambridge if you are around.

I used to do all of my book buying here when I lived in the area. Lovely bookstore with a well curated selection of titles and very good staff.

It's a typical bookstore, always seems to be crazy inside but pretty manageable to walk about.

Good collection of books, but it was confusing with Harvard University Coop because I thought it was the official book store. It's shame that the clerk wasn't nice.

Heavens and earth, yes. My first flying visit (1972) asked about a paperback Lattimore translation of Odyssey. Clerk at the cash pointed at the two dollar hardback on a remainder table. Visiting ten years later, flying through town again, asked about Hooker's Laws of Ecclesiatical Polity. Again, clerk at the cash pointed to a two dollar hardback on the remainder table. Perochoresis, those weirdly timed serieses of events that dance and swirl around us as we move through our lives.
