|The Librairie Gourmande is a bookstore with nothing but cookbooks, old and new, from many times and places.|
NOTE: the word librairie in French means BOOKSTORE, not library!
A few photos of the interior of the Librairie Gourmande:

sociology, history, and specialized cookbooks.
|They even have several copies of Modernist Cuisine.|
The two books that I bought:
|Recipes from the Ivory Coast, in a book published there.|
|Moroccan Cuisine: the very knowledgeable store clerk|
