The first time I was there, probably ca. 1975, it was a wonderful old
bookstore with tall wooden bookcases and fascinating old stuff. I
couldn't afford all the things they had that I needed -- and I've never
again found a copy of Theodor Nöldeke's *Beiträge und neue Beiträge*.
The other time I was there, probably 1990, it looked like a Barnes &
Noble and didn't have any of the obscure scholarly stuff it had made its
reputation on.
