    1. Yeah, the smell was definitely a defining feature, especially considering the generally humid and damp nature of Venice. The store owner mentioned that the place would flood regularly, so some of the books on the floor near the door access to the adjacent canal had kind of melted and fused together.

  2. I agree…if you need to be organised you should be in Angus and Robertson…this is a REAL bookstore :). You could lose yourself for hours here…my kind of heaven :)
