Welcome to Chevalier's Books, Los Angeles's oldest indie bookstore, established in 1940.


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.
