Some books are rare and expensive, but a little bargain hunting will turn up gems. – Hidden Treasures
The Witte Museum may have some treasures, but San Antonio's real finds lay across the street at Cheever Books. Take, for example, Davey Crockett's diary, which made its home at Cheever before going up for auction and selling for $350,000. Or perhaps their copy of Dickens' "Little Dorrit," which goes for $1,095.
Stacks and Stacks
The store's nine rooms are packed with 85,000 volumes, everything from etiquette to espionage, most in outstanding condition. The children's section boasts the entire Hardy Boys collection and if you're missing a Nancy Drew mystery, you've come to the right place.
Books stacked from floor to ceiling make for crowded quarters and hours of good reading. Despite its seemingly small size, Cheever is simply chock-full of great works.
