“Awesome place for rare, out of print and generally hard to find scholarly books.”
Commonwealth Books - Boston
“Commonwealth Books and Old Prints in Boston, Mass. A gorgeous old store full of old books (some worth thousands of $$$), and with a cat in the window as well. I was in awe of this place. I could have spent a day in there just looking at the old and rare books. They even had a little sitting area with a wingback chair in front of an electric fireplace. The cat was either greeting people at the door or lying on his cushion in the window.”
