Bookstore recommendations in London, Paris, and Barcelona?

I'm hopelessly fond of bookstores, and I often use bookstores as anchor points when exploring a new city. (I used to offer friends an all-day bookstore-based tour of NYC back when I lived there.) I'm finally going to Europe this summer, and amongst the many things I'm excited about are the many bookstores I'll get to visit (and probably spend far too much at; yes, I'm planning on bringing a spare suitcase). I'm know there's no lack of stores in any of these cities, but I want to make sure I don't miss any particularly good ones. Do you have any favorites?
Used, academic, unusual, historic, specialized, well-curated: These are all good, as are stores that sell books in French, Catalan, or Spanish (or English). (I found a few threads about cheap London
stores but that's not all I'm looking for.)
