This is the famous bookshop where beat poets could publish their banned works. Actually it's possible to find a really refined books collection about almost everything: prose, poetry, manuals, magazine and much more... sometimes they organize conference (I was there during an interesting conference about economics ).
The employees aren't intrusive and it's possible to browse in silence.
Grate collection of magazine!
