Does anyone have any suggestions for used book-stores in Chicago? It's virtually
impossible to know whether they'll have a good foreign language collection through

Selected Works near Grant Park has a pretty good selection of Latin and Greek classics,
each taking up maybe a bookcase with original language and translations mixed at about
50-50. Their other foreign language stuff is segregated in another section. I've not
paid much attention to it as most of it seems to be in French or German, neither of
which interests me much. I'd say that there's one very full bookcase of that.

Myopic Books in Wicker Park has about two bookcases in the basement. Some of it is
reference, but some of it is also books in the language (rather than about the
language). I've not bought anything there, but I've got weird tastes.

Anyway. Day late and dollar short as always, but I figure I'd rather necropost than
leave this question unanswered for future askers.
