Welcome to Astrolabe Booksellers

Astrolabe Books is now trading from 3 Morrison Street, Hobart - in shared premises with Kent & Kent Antiques (adjacent to Constitution Dock and the Mawson's Hut Replica Museum).  Normal opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10am-3pm - or by arrangement - contact Michael Sprod on 0408 132 970 at any time. 
   

 
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.
