 Astrolabe Booksellers no longer has its own shopfront, and now operates as an internet/mail order. business. All stock is fully described and available for order from this website, and regular catalogues will be issued, as previously. Enquiries by phone, email or mail are welcome, and a search service for hard-to-find titles is still available. Our regular appearances at book and antique fairs in Hobart and Launceston, Melbourne and Clunes will also be continued.

Some Astrolabe stock is on display in Hobart at THE ANTIQUES WAREHOUSE, 64 WARWICK STREET (
opening hours Monday to Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4. Phone 03 6231 9284). Local customers, or visitors to Hobart, can browse and purchase the books displayed there, or collect internet/phone/mail orders. Those offering books for can sale bring them here for inspection - by prior arrangement - and please note that any enquiries should be directed to Michael Sprod on 0408 132 970 and NOT to the Antiques Warehouse.

Contact details are unchanged:

Please search or browse our inventory of hard-to-find, out-of-print, secondhand and rare books. If you have a particular author or title in mind use the Quick Search box at the head of the Navigation column to the left of this page or, if you want your search to be more specific, use the Advanced Search option.

Our Browse by Subject page will show our books grouped in categories but, as many books could be allocated to more than one subject, a Keyword search using the Quick Search box will often result in more books being shown than at the corresponding subject link. Tip: you can use two or more keywords to narrow your search - simply join the words with a + sign without spaces - e.g. tasmania+convicts

If you are looking for a particular book and can't find it here, you can leave a request and we will endeavour to locate a copy see Offline Search Service.

For details of how to order, postage (shipping) and payment options see How to Order.

For our policy on returns, see Our Guarantee.
