Sell your books to Berkelouw

We buy and sell rare, old, and collectible books as well as fine, used and quality second hand books. Located in Sydney, Queensland and the Southern Highlands, Berkelouw Books is Australia's largest second hand and antiquarian bookseller.

In most cases, by selling to us, you may achieve higher prices than you might at auction because neither a seller's nor a buyer's premium will be charged.

To save the costs and difficulties of transport, please send us a list of the books you wish to sell, giving the author and title, the publisher and date and place of publication, and the condition. We will examine the list and inform you of the books in which we are interested. If your collection is too large to list, please contact us so that we can organise a time to visit you to assess the collection.

We do not buy damaged books, encyclopaedias, text books, Readers Digest books, or National Geographic magazines.

For more information about this service, please telephone (02) 4877 1370 or (02) 9360 3200

or email us at booksbought@berkelouw.com.au

Please drive into the car park under the store and our buyer will meet you at your car.
