For browsers it doesn't get much better than this, the largest used and rare bookshop in Africa with 2 000 000 items to look at. Founded in 1974, Collectors Treasury has a dizzying array of books, maps, collectibles, engravings, prints, porcelain, fine china, vinyl records and small antiques spread over a few floors of an eight-storey city block. And if they have what you ask for, the owners will locate it, as if by some miracle. The books are heaped along walls, staircases, and arranged atop any surface that will hold them. Take your time to unearth some treasures.
