Lame Duck Books12 Arrow St., Cambridge
Tucked away on a side street in Harvard Square, Lame Duck Books resembles a gentleman's study, replete with dark wood and rare works of art. The shop specializes in first editions, signed copies, and extremely rare finds, like President Kennedy's inaugural address (right), from the collection of Arthur Schlesinger Jr.'s personal library. Though the signed manuscript sells for a cool $125,000, selections from Lame Duck's inventory can range from $5 to $500,000.
