We are a general antiquarian & second-hand bookshop with approximately 10,000 titles. We cover a broad range of subjects, but our first love is literature. Our stock can be viewed on-line, and purchased using our secure ordering service.

Established in the early 1980’s, we are members of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers, affiliated with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers.

We issue catalogues on a variety of subjects, and attend bookfairs and auctions in Australia and overseas. We are happy to undertake commissions for our clients.

Louella Kerr is an Approved Valuer under the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program, and undertakes valuations for private, corporate, and institutional clients. Author and critic Gerard Windsor is a more silent partner in the business, responsible for research and collection development.
