We have original paintings, maps and prints, both framed and unframed in stock in most of the above categories.
We also have a large selection of Childrens books in English and Afrikaans. We also probably have the best selection of Bushman Art, Foreign Dictionaries and Travel Guides anywhere.

A range of book accessories such as book ends and book stands are available. Solid pine bookcases can be made to order and to your reqired size. Our Book Restoration Dept is well-known for making grotty & battered old books look like well-cared-for, precious old books.

We buy general books in fine condition. If they are very old and rare we will still buy them to restore. All our books are cleaned, restored if necessary and covered in polyethylene (clear plastic).
Many of our items are unique on the Internet : eg: Complete 9th and 10th edns, leather bound, of Encyclopaedia Britannica: complete 11 vol set of Smollet’s History of England, complete 36 vol set of the Gold Series of Rhodesiana reprints in pig-skin with gold tiles.

We look for your wants and advise you when we have found something. Questions or comments? Get in touch with us at: tony@booklovers.co.za
