Leary’s was a landmark Philly bookstore that was open for nearly a hundred years, at one-time advertising that they were the oldest book shop in America. This little booklet recounts the history and wonders of the shop, including the use of Spitzweg’s painting The Bookworm as a mural on the business. The Bookworm image was used on much of Leary’s signage and promotional materials, including the cover of this booklet.
