Haslam’s bookstore has been serving St. Petersburgers since 1933. It’s a very large store (this picture is only half of it), with a wide variety, including rare and hard-to-find books. One in particular caught my attention:

A first edition of Eliot’s Four Quartets would be a nice addition to anyone’s collection. But at $1,600 I’m going to choose instead to eat all next year.

Haslam’s has an excellent selection of older music books and biographies, and a very well-stocked section devoted to the Second World War, too. This picture represents about 1/5 the size of the store:

I was hoping they’d have one or two of the books about Nadia Boulanger I was looking for, but it was still a few hours well-spent.
