The floor-to-ceiling shelves of La Librairie Alain Brieux are filled with rare antique books on everything from physics and chemistry to astronomy, skeletons and natural history. Expect to find anatomical models formed from wax and paper mache, skeletons, glass eyeballs, rare optical tool kits and other fascinating things.
