I discovered this the other week when I went into the University of Pennsylvania bookstore. They had a bunch of editions of every book I could think of, including ones I couldn't find anywhere else. Sorta pissed me off that I'd been missing out for so long desu
Harvard's Co-op (the actual university bookstore) is dank as hell. In Harvard Square there is also a used bookstore called Raven and the misleadingly named "Harvard Bookstore" which is still a great one.

Not technically Ivy League, but the University of Chicago Co-op is the best store in the world.
