Boston is such a cool and unique town, one of the oldest in America with a ton of interesting history, and the Brattle Bookshop is definitely not to be missed if you are looking for something unique, historic, and truly Boston.

Owned by the Gloss family and opened in 1825, the Brattle Bookshop has an impressive collection of over a quarter million books, prints, maps, and literary oddities. What we found so fantastic is that it’s tucked away in this positively ancient alley in Cornhill that transports you back in town.

We got a chance to talk with Ken the owner who has a very unique story about one of the greatest, if not most mysterious, American authors to ever live. Check it out.
