Description 196 North Terrace, Adelaide SA Australia 5000 (opposite the State Library) The business was established in Adelaide in March 1976 and is a longstanding member of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (ANZAAB) and the Australian Antique Dealers Association (AADA). A large out-of-print and antiquarian stock is maintained at two retail outlets in the centre of Adelaide; mail-order catalogues of our specializations are issued and a representative selection of our stock is online here. Selected images may be viewed in the gallery. We deal in material that has stood the test of time (or in our opinion, is likely to stand the test of time!); some of our particular enthusiasms are modern first editions, cricket ephemera, North Australiana, photographs (especially photographically illustrated books) and autograph material. Contact us if you wish to receive subject catalogues or recent acquisitions lists. We actively search for books in the subject areas in which we deal, and wants lists are always welcome. Offers of books, photographs and autographs are also encouraged! Valuations are a major part of our business; Michael Treloar is approved to value books and manuscripts (especially Australian) and photographic material for the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program.
