Book Finder Service
Can’t find the book you need? Try our book finding service. Click on the button above and provide us with as much detail as you can.
We specialise in Australian history, local history, biographies and academic and social science publications. (We do not find fiction books)
Not everything is findable via a Google search, our book finding service can assist. Having spent decades as a specialist librarian, Miriam has impressive skills in hunting down rare and scarce books. We go to plenty of secondhand book sales, op shops and deceased estates, looking for specific history books. We also know many bookstores that aren't on Google.
Your enquiry is free. When we find a copy in the condition you want, we contact you and you can decide whether you want to proceed.
We charge a flat fee of $40.00 because scarce out-of-print hardcopies, valued at $50 or $250, take time to hunt down.
This is how it works: a book found for $150 will cost you $150 plus a typical postage cost of $9.00 plus our fee of $40.00. All up $199.00.
We will customise our fee and quote up front if you need multiple books found.
