We Buy Books

We buy books principally from metropolitan Melbourne and the surrounding regions, in particular The Mornington Peninsula, and specialize in purchasing deceased estates. However, we also buy select books from around Australia.

Our original Port Melbourne shop had a reputation for offering above average prices and attracted many people wanting to sell books. We always strive to offer very fair prices when purchasing.

When you sell to an independent bookseller you avoid the buyer and seller premiums which are charged at auction rooms. Please send us a list of the books you are interested in selling, including author, title, publisher, plus date & location of publication, and describe the condition of the book. We will respond promptly to your query with a list of the books in which we are interested.

You can contact us by email, telephone, or good old fashioned snail mail as below if you have any further questions concerning the sale of your books.

Get in touch and let us know what you have
