This bookstore owned by George Whitman is as iconic as the one owned by Sylvia Whitman on rue de l'Odéon. Named to honour the original Shakespeare & Company, this charming little bookstore is a treasure chest of books. It still retains the old Parisian aura and is all about books and books only.

Opened in 1919 originally, Sylvia Beach Shakespeare & Company has seen celebrated writers like Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemmingway and James Joyce gather in the premises to discuss their work and ideate. Today, it serves both as a regular bookstore, a second-hand books store and as a reading library, specializing in English-language literature. It still continues to shelter writers who practically live and work there.
