"Brattle Book Shop - one of America's oldest antiquarian book shops (est. 1825). Founded in the Cornhill section of Boston in 1825, it has been in the hands of the Gloss Family since 1949.
Housed in a three-story building in the heart of Downtown Boston, The Brattle Book Shop carries an impressive stock of over 250,000 books, maps, prints, postcards and ephemeral items in all subjects. In addition to its general used and out-of-print stock, The Brattle Book Shop also maintains an inventory of first editions, collectibles and fine leather bindings in its rare book room". _
