Please note that Astrolabe Booksellers is currently on a break, returning 13 April 2018, and that any orders from this website cannot be despatched until that time. But any email queries or requests will be answered during this period.  Customers in Hobart can still peruse most of our stock which is on display - and for sale - at The Antique Warehouse (64 Warwick St, Hobart), opening hours Mon-Sat 10am--5pm, Sunday 12--4pm.


From this website you can search or browse our inventory of hard-to-find, out-of-print, secondhand and rare books. The Quick Search box to the left of this page can be used to search by author's name or partial title. You can also use a 'keyword' here to find books on a particular subject - for example 'convicts'. Note that you can use more than one word, joined with a plus (+) sign, e.g. tasmania+convicts+women.


The Advanced Search option allows you to make a more specific search, including the publisher, but note that keywords can not be used with that option.


Our subject categories are useful also, but as each book could be listed under more than one category, a keyword search is likely to discover more titles.
