When Alfred Hitchcock walked into this bookstore while filming the movie Vertigo, he said something to the effect of “This is exactly what a bookstore should look like,” and promptly recreated every detail of it on a Hollywood sound stage. This antiquarian book shop specializes in California history, the American West, rare books, as well as maps, prints, and photographs. Open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 10 am to 4pm.
