Welcome to Chevalier's Books, Los Angeles's

oldest indie bookstore.

An iconic cornerstone of Larchmont Village in Hancock Park, Chevalier's was founded in 1940

by book maverick Joe Chevalier.

(Pronounced shi-vah-lee-ay.)

 

As a general trade bookstore we take great pride in our curation and are confident we can find a book for anyone— from the seven year old who exclusively reads about dinosaurs to the literary connoisseur in the mood for a Bulgarian epic.
