There are books stacked everywhere, plus LP records, sheet music, maps, porcelain and postcards. One of the owners, Jonathan Klass, who has been in the business since 1974, says his parents were collectors and he grew up with 100 000 books around him. His family has never stopped collecting, and several floors of the eight-storey building the shop is in are filled with his collections. We dont throw anything out,he says. You'll find books of every subject under the sun except for school textbooks and business management. He sells books on several websites too: abebooks.com and addall.com. Records are sold through gemm.com and musicstack.com. Go and get high on books.
