We carry a good range of antiquarian and secondhand books on a wide variety of subjects, specialising in works
on Tasmania, Australia, Antarctica, Aborigines (especially Tasmanian), and maritime subjects. These days, more and more of our business is conducted over the Internet. You can search our stock for a particular title/author from our web-page by using the Search Our Stock link above, or you can also browse (or search) our stock by Subject List or view any of our recent catalogues, by using the links above. All of these pages have a shopping basket and secure ordering facility. We issue short lists or catalogues of recent acquisitions every couple of months. These are distributed by email and are posted on this website; but we also post printed copies on request. We also continue to take requests for those hard-to-find titles, especially in our main areas of interest.
