World's Most Beautiful Bookstore

El Ateneo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Came across this via Roger Ebert's Twitter page.

Just returned from a lovely dinner with my girlfriend followed by a trip to a favorite local used book store of ours. They had a weird old paperback copy of Ulysses, apparently very rare it was priced at $150 and kept in a glass case with some other rare birds. I ended up purchasing a paperback copy of Joseph Campbell's India Journals entitled Baksheesh and Brahman (I have the Japanese Journals and wasn't that into it but this one is supposed to be a little better to read) for pretty cheap as well as a cool little paperback that contains Joyce's Dubliners, Portrait, and Chamber Music.
