I miss this place. <3
Brattle Book Shop at 9 West Street in Boston, Massachusetts. One of America’s oldest and largest used book shops, the Brattle features an outside sale lot, two floors of general used books, and a third floor of rare & antiquarian books. Housed in a three-story building in the heart of Downtown Boston, The Brattle Book Shop carries an impressive stock of over 250,000 books, maps, prints, postcards and ephemeral items in all subjects. In addition to its general used and out-of-print stock, The Brattle Book Shop also maintains an inventory of collectibles, first editions and fine leather bindings in its rare book room.

My favorite bookstore in Boston and one of my favorite places in the world. I miss walking by and thinking I would just stop for five minutes and then staying there for two hours. Also, the owner is one of the nicest gentlemen I’ve been lucky enough to meet and photograph.
