Finding a Brierly Guide in Porto

Hi again, all.

Any recommendations as to where I might find a copy of John Brierly's guidebook in Porto?
Livraria Lello sounds greatly appealing, so will go there in any case. Can I assume I'll find it there, though, or are there other places you'd recommend?

Thanks as always,

Someone asked this exact question a week ago and posted where a guidebook was found. Perhaps you can search for the thread and find where to go. I do know that a year ago someone did find one at Lello.

Thanks, Anemone. I have the same recollection, but haven't been able to find the post. Will keep looking (and share if I find it), but will also welcome additional input from anyone who has it to offer.

It was there last November! The shop is lovely. It cost maybe €3 for entrance ticket which is taken off your purchase. I went at 9am on a Saturday and got in after about 10 minute wait. No need to book online (which costs more, I presume because you get a time slot allocated).

I just thought I'd share that Livraria Lello did as if last week have copies of Brierly's detailed guide as well as an abbreviated one. The clerk handed me the abbreviated version, so I'm glad I looked myself and found the detailed version. As suggested by others, it's a bit of a zoo in there, not to mention the hassle of having to line up to buy a ticket. Still, it's an incredibly beautiful store, and I'd like to go early in the day or offseason, when I imagine it might not be so crowded.
