Book Stores

Polar Books. Want an Arctic or Antarctic book, go no further than Polar Books! Based on extensive personal experience in Antarctica this has become one of the leading booksellers specializing in the Arctic and Antarctic.

Gaston Renard. The catalog of their book auction of Antarctic books in November 1994 is a valuable reference book for collectors. They continue to have one of the biggest inventory of Antarctic books.

Arnold Books in Christchurch New Zealand has a great selection of difficult to find Antarctic Books. It's a relatively small store, and a bit cramped for spending too much time browsing. But I try and visit every time in town.

Book Lore in Canberra has a relatively small (compared to the other stores on this page) but very good selection of Antarctic books. The staff are extremely helpful. It's one of the things I miss about Canberra.

Serendipity Books. I've never been to this store, but have bought a number of hard to get Antarctic books from their catalog. Good selection, and very reliable.

Berkelouw Books. One of the first books I bought which indicated I was becoming a collector was from Berkelouw's catalog. Their Berrima store is fun to visit, and the store in Oxford St in Sydney was also well worth visiting (I haven't been there in over 10 years).

Astrolabe Booksellers in Hobart has a very good range of Antarctic books. I recently visited their store, which has changed quite a bit since I lived there 10 years ago. Their range is still excellent and I picked up some very nice Antarctic books.

Bluntisham Books are specialists in polar books. They have one of the best inventories going, and along with Erskine Press, publish important Antarctic material.

Antipodean Books, Maps & Prints has stock that will make your mouth water! Reasonably priced aslo.

Online Book Sellers

There are a number of excellent online book stores for new and used books. I'm very fond of one in particular - www.abebooks.com. Along with alibris, many book stores use these sites for their online sales.

Abebooks - I can not recommend this site highly enough. Not only does it give access to a large number of seller, with a massive inventory, it is good deal for the sellers also!

Alibris - I used this site a lot before I discovered abebooks.com. I still use it occasionally.

Antarctic Connection - For all things Antarctic, inlcuding books, you can't go wrong with The Antarctic Connection.

And of course there is always the usual Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Borders.
