||We accept books on consignment with a view to offering them on AntiquarianAuctions.com. We charge 30% gross of the hammer price obtained, for our services, which includes the collating, describing, researching, photographing, packing, despatching and collection of payments, including some 13% of the hammer price in auctioneering fees and financial charges, plus $1 per item listed as well as the VAT these external charges incur. Feel free to contact us for further information.
We specialize in books about Africa, with emphasis on Southern Africa. Our stock comprises books published between the 17th & 20th centuries, mainly in English and Afrikaans, with smaller numbers of Dutch, German and French titles - in the following broad categories:
Fiction & Literature

For our local customers we issue three catalogues yearly; E-mail catalogues can be issued on request and 'Wants Lists' are most welcome.
