Best place to uncover those long-forgotten titles

Pazzo means "crazy" in Italian. And while the folks at Pazzo Books, in Roslindale Square, have done their best to arrange things in neat, orderly categories, this used bookstore tends to have a chaotic, unwieldy feel to it. But don't let that discourage you. Because the folks at Pazzo also have lots of used, collectible, and, yes, rare literary works -- try 14,000 of them. There are novels, mysteries, and the classics. There are the tomes dedicated to art, architecture, and photography. There are the self-help books, the cooking books, the health books, the history books, and so on. More often than not, you can find whatever obscure and long-forgotten title you desire. The first published edition of Toni Morrison's Beloved? They've got it ($35). The first published edition of Culinary Encyclopedia of Cooking? They've got it ($15). The last known copy of four 17th-century American plays? They've got it (approximately $2000). At Pazzo Books, you can buy all those novels you always meant to buy but never got around to. Or those paperbacks you tossed in order to lighten your moving load, but now wish you'd kept after all. Pazzo Books has them -- and more. We are, after all, talking about that "crazy" used bookstore.

Pazzo Books, 4268 Washington Street, Roslindale, (617) 323-2919; www.pazzobooks.com.
