Lined with oak galleries and lit by a long, central skylight, it prides itself on its travel collection, which is located down a groaning wooden staircase. Everything is arranged by the country it’s about—Third Reich histories under Germany, Tolstoy under Russia. It’s no slouch in the general interest categories, either. Clerks seem to know what will interest the vaguest browser, and the cashier’s desk is always piled with choice curiosities.
