The Book Collector has been in business since 1993, originally as a retail bookshop in Castle Hill and then for over 12 years in Parramatta.

Now we only sell on-line and occasionally at book fairs.

We sell quality second-hand and out of print books at competitive prices. As professional booksellers our combined experience in the book industry exceeds 70 years. We are founder members of the Book Dealer’s Guild (NSW).

View our extensive inventory of many thousands of books that are currently in stock and ready to be ordered at ABEbooks.com

We are constantly adding to our listings on ABEbooks.com, but if you can’t find the book that you are looking for then please e-mail us as we have a large number of titles still to be listed. Eventually we will have in excess of 10,000 books for you to choose from. Our listings not only tell you something about the book and describe its condition but also provides such details as the size and weight of the book and many will even have an image of the cover. When you order from us at ABEbooks.com you can pay instantly and safely by credit card and we will adjust the postage on your purchase to reflect actual costs. We take great care to make sure that the books we send to our customers are well packed.

We do buy books but they need to be in good condition and we are very selective so if you have books to sell please send us the details in an e-mail   to: bill.mclennan@thebookcollector.com or you can always call us on mobile: 0418-601-842. We are particularly interested in the following subjects: Australiana (espeically Aboriginal Studies); Biggles; African & Indian Big-game hunting books and Military History/War. However please note we do not buy Fiction; Reader’s Digest condensed books, sets of Encyclopaedias or magazines.
