Elizabeth’s is a well-known and long-standing Newtown institution that was the home of Australia’s first blind date with a book. Books are wrapped in brown paper; there isn’t any information written on them other than what you can see through their covers, making them seem like an intriguing challenge for anyone who wants to take up this adventure.
The bookshelf in this room is a treasure trove. It’s home to new releases, second-hand volumes on Australian art and history, and vintage magazines with interesting articles about cooking or law that you never knew existed. Their extensive range of books is perfect for all types, from biographies and memoirs to travelogues. They also carry Australian art history titles and vintage magazines, which are great if you’re looking for hard-to-find editions or just want something different from what everyone else has been reading lately.
Elizabeth’s Bookshops are the largest second-hand bookseller in Australia, with four branches across two continents. For 48 years, they have been offering our customers discounted new books and an extensive range of out of print titles from all periods spanning anywhere between 0riginius to Modern Times. They also stock many rare treasures that can’t be found elsewhere on this island or even overseas – so if you’re looking for something special, then go visit them at one (or more) of their stores located outside Sydney CBD; Perth WA; Fremantle and King St Newtown NSW.
The first Elizabeth’s Bookshop was in Nedlands, WA (next to the University of Western Australia). Since then, there have been branches all over Perth and Fremantle. In Subiaco, they had a shop on High Street near All Saints Church, which is now closed due to recent renovations.
In stock at their Fremantle Warehouse and King Street shops, you’ll find a wide range of books for all tastes. They buy from customers who bring their treasures in, or they go out into the world to find what’s missing pieces your set – whether it be expensive Victorian Family Bibles (brass clasps) second-hand Penguins collected across England on buying expeditions overseas.
The more books you have, the better. Elizabeth’s Bookshops is looking for anything in good condition and want to buy your favorite reads. If this sounds like an opportunity of a lifetime, then get rid of those old titles that are just sitting on your bookshelf taking up space right now because they’ll give cash money (or trade) value on what they’re worth so don’t let them go tomorrow when there could be someone out there who is interested in buying them today instead.
