The Galcante was founded by Christian Bailly, the chairman of the “Musée de la Presse”. When it first opened in 1975, it began as a small shop that just sold copies of what was in the museum’s collections, and later progressed into the first French society selling old newspapers and documents.
But La Galcante isn’t just a place to find yesterday’s news. There’s all kinds of good stuff to dig through, like these beautiful vintage maps which outline countries that no longer exist…
It’s a maze of nooks and crannies to duck and dive into, adorned with eye-catching collectible trinkets at every turn.
Including an impressive stash of The New Yorker magazine, dating back to the early 1960s, all in very good condition.
