We have operated a book store in the beautiful historic French Quarter since 1967 and have been at our current location on Decatur Street since 1979. Often customers stroll by on their way to Jackson Square and Cafe du Monde for beignets, surprised that such an independently-owned book store is alive and well in this day and age.

Our shop contains fifty to sixty thousand second-hand books on two stories. Our books cover a wide array of topics including: history, music, law, cooking, fiction, philosophy, reference, art, biography, politics, religion/spirituality/occult, science, math, children's, military, geography, transportation, home and gardening, adventure/exploration, sports, poetry, theater, nature, medicine/health, sociology, essays, parenting, gender/women/sex studies, psychology, foreign languages, graphic design, crafts, humor…pretty much any topic you can imagine.

We also carry new titles on New Orleans, Louisiana and the South. We place particular emphasis on histories, architecture, literature, music and cooking.
Additionally, we have a large collection of second hand classical CDs and LPs.

If there is a specific book or CD that you’d like to see if we have in stock, please call our shop at (504) 522-9875. We will only be checking our Facebook page periodically, so please don't send us want lists!

We allow dogs and beer. Come visit!

p.s. We also operate Librairie, a bookshop at 823 Chartres St. just one block downriver from the St. Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square.
