Intelligence at the top

Upstairs, after a wall of complete works carefully place, step by step, on a narrow staircase  Yoshio Okudaira, the French and German speaking owner, accumulates in this glory hole of paper, many paperbacks, which are mainly literary and philosophical publications in the language of Roland Barthes and Arthur Schopenhauer, as well as illustrated and written humanities books. Much of the literature deals with the Greek and Roman civilizations. A delight for discerning readers, even if it is only to consult the various catalogs.
