INTERNET BOOKSHOP: SELLING BOOKS SINCE 1998
PO Box 176, Annandale NSW 2038, Australia
Phone: (02) 9550-1258 (late afternoon or message).
From time to time, we buy books. HOWEVER, WE BUY ONLY A FEW OF THE BOOKS OFFERED TO US. Because we have closed our storefront bookshop, we no longer buy popular fiction and other low-value books from the public. We prefer to buy small collections in our specialist areas (see below).
We are particularly interested in:
The price we pay depends on a number of factors, but especially condition, content, the estimated time taken to sell the book, and our periodic purchase limit. We prefer very good or better condition, except for obviously scarce books.
Examples of specific current wants:
Please email us if you would like us to search for a book for you. But firstly try these book databases, particularly for common books: www.booksandcollectibles.com.au, www.bookshops.com.au, www.abebooks.com, www.bookfinders.com.
Please supply as much detail as possible, but especially the author, title, publisher, and date of publication (if known). Please also specify hardback or paperback, an upper price limit, and a date needed by (for example, a birthday present or education course).
Book finding is not our main activity; thus we cannot promise a quick result. We give priority to customers from our local area (the inner western suburbs of Sydney), as well as customers who have purchased from us previously.
We maintain a list of books wanted by customers. Please specify whether you require:
1. Passive search. We note down the book details, and contact you should a copy of the book arrive in our shop during our normal course of business.
2. Active search. We actively search for a copy of the book, for example, by examining computer databases and phoning or visiting bookshops. We do not charge a search fee.
