Yes we buy books
We have the largest stock of new and used Tasmanian books for sale that you'll find anywhere... and to maintain that boast we do need to purchase a large number and wide variety of Tasmanian books on a regular basis. We're looking for books in good or better condition, books that are out of print but have stood the test of time, lesser known Tasmanian publications from earliest colonial times, to more recent decades and of course the books that become standard reference works in their fields, think Endemic Flora of Tasmania and Early Houses of Northern Tasmania.
A first step is to take a few photos of your surplus Tasmanian books and email them to us to start the conversation.
