STOCK RANGE

We are Australia's largest natural history specialist bookshop established in 1981, with comprehensive new and secondhand stock and substantial holdings in fine antiquarian natural history. All major natural history subjects are catered for.

While we are able to supply all standard natural history publications we pride ourselves on our ability to source specialised and hard-to-find material world-wide. Our strength in this area is due to our highly specialised knowledge of both the subject matter and the natural history book market. Belinda Isles oversees our bibliographic research and we are constantly researching new material from within Australia and internationally. Andrew Isles devotes much of his time to sourcing quality secondhand and antiquarian natural history material.

To get a feel for our stock range we would be please to send you a sample of books on approval or a short list of books in either electronic or printed format. Alternatively, you are welcome to browse or search our stock range on our website.

FREIGHT

We are primarily mail order and as such ship world-wide most days of the week. We employ a near full-time packer and our packing is of the highest quality. We offer efficient and secure delivery of parcels world-wide at reasonable cost to our customers. We also offer a postage consolidation service to minimise postage costs. Under such an arrangement we would process your order as usual and then hold your books awaiting further orders. Your parcel would then be sent once a certain weight or time frame has been reached, 5kg or once a month for example.

For local libraries and institutions that would like to visit our shop, we offer a full shop service. We are open normal business hours and no appointment is necessary.
