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.

Come say hi!
