You think you've seen every globe there is? Ha. Murray
has tiny globes and big globes and globes old and globes new. They line the floor, the walls, the tops of shelves.

Ask Murray about a specific historical period and he will
put his finger to his mouth and think. Then he goes to the stacks and starts pulling out artifacts of the era you want. A
encyclopedic knowledge of both history and geography is a must in his business.

Of all the maps Murray has sold, none have
featured a big black X marking the spot. "Some people cannot believe there are no such things as treasure maps"
he says with a sigh. "I tell them to just look around the shop,. It's filled with treasures."
