Livres anciens - Librairie Paul Vulin

Old books..

Beautiful, if slightly worn, old books can be bought in many places 
throughout Paris from the flea markets to the Passages de Paris.  
If they were not so heavy, I would have a larger collection.  

This photo reminds me 
that I need to bring back at least one with every trip.  
I no longer travel with a guide book, 
so there should be room for a single antique book in my carry-on.

I stopped buying books. It's much better to simply get the one you want at the library.
