Sylvia Beach’s (1887-1962) English-language bookshop, Shakespeare & Company. Originally established in 1919 on rue Dupuytren, moving to 12 rue de l’Odéon in 1921, where the store remained until 1941. The “new” Shakespeare & Company today is located at 37 Rue Bûcherie.

In the 1920s the store was a gathering place for writers such as Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, Ford Madox Ford (English author; grandson of Ford Madox Brown), F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Man Ray, André Gide & James Joyce.  The “new” location appears, of course, in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”.
