In the outer edges of the Bazaar -- away from the bustle and press of merchants, but still in the spires' shadows -- you find a smog-blackened building with bottle-green windows, a half-timbered relic from before the Fall. You can make out the sign Paulsen & Associates, booksellers, and beneath it Septentrionem appetimus.

The rooms are a labyrinth of shelves and the shelves a labyrinth of books, with all the order a fly knows from the center of a web: threads winding under further threads and all of them, somehow, connected. Have you been studying the secret matters of the Neath? Do you need an account of the Mongol capital Karakorum, or copies of ancient Egyptian funerary texts, or a survey of comparative soul lore? Do you need lyrics translated from Loamsproach, or a guide to the flora and fauna of Watchmaker's Hill? Or perhaps you're looking for the epic poetry of Fallen London's own Israel Salvador?

Theodor Gylden keeps the catalogue, in his spider-legged writing. What you need, you may find here, but to take it would be to pluck a thread from a web; browsing is encouraged and sales are rare.
