used cookbooks

I am wondering if there are any used book stores who have extensive and/or eclectic collections of cookbooks for sale - (deux semaines et deux jours jusqu'à ce que jusqu'à sillage des flys d'oiseaux grands)

thanks for all the help in making this trip a reality

  1. Indeed there are! One of the least expensive and rather comprehensive is at the flea market at Clignancourt. It is on a back street that is parallel to the main street.

    1. I found a store called La Cocotte in 11th. Website that suggested it said that it specializes only on cookbooks. I haven't been to there myself.

      1. I can't speak as to the timeliness (opening hours, etc) but David Lebovitz ran this a couple of years ago:

        It's probably best that I don't know their opening hours - I have to make a concerted effort to stay away from places like this.

          This was to be my addition, did know Lebovitz mentioned it, as l do not follow him. The stand is just off Pont Neuf on the Seine side on the left bank. His hours are variable, but open far more than closed. A very worthwhile location to browse at.

        2. Remi Flachard at 9, rue de Bac ( has a formidable collection of old and historic books on cooking and gastronomy.
