THE STRAND

In 2002, owner Fred Bass told the Times that the titles most frequently lifted from THE STRAND were tomes on philosophy, fancy mathematics, and erudite religious studies—making it fairly safe to assume that the Strand attracts pilferers with higher-than-average reasoning skills. Reason this: if you're gonna shamelessly pinch texts, at least do it at a place where you can't also take home Relativity: The Special and General Theory for $3.95.
