We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Our Shop

When and Where
Tuesday-Saturday, noon-6; other times easily arranged. Please phone ahead if you're coming from a distance, as occasionally we're closed during our regular hours. We're at the back of a leafy garden and not visible from the street.  Look for the big blue "1640" banner near Tocco Classico hair salon, follow the garden path through the trellis-work arch, and head down the stairs.  You've found Cambridge's "hidden bookstore!"

Getting Here
We're between Harvard and Porter Squares (about half a mile each way), near the Red Line T and the 77, 77A, and 96 bus stops. Walking along the Cambridge Common will take you to a sidewalk set with golden horseshoes, which mark the ride of patriot William Dawes in 1775.  There's metered parking on Massachusetts Avenue, but no side street parking.

Our Neighbors
Starbucks, Marathon Sports, Hi Rise bakery, Harvard Law School, Lunder Arts Center at Lesley University College of Art and Design, Longy School of Music, and the many independent specialty shops and good local restaurants that have led the Boston Globe to call this stretch of Massachusetts Avenue "the new Harvard Square."  The side streets are lined with lovely Victorian houses and gardens.
