This will be a live auction via the Invaluable online platform, with absentee and phone bidding available as well. Viewing will be by appointment at our premises, for seven days beforehand (subject to government regulations). All lots will be illustrated online and additional images can be provided.

The catalogue will be uploaded in the second week of November.


Peter Arnold Rare Books was established in Melbourne in 1969 and our shop is in the inner suburb of Prahran, with stock also available online.

We deal in fine and rare books of most descriptions, but with an emphasis on Australiana, as well as colonial prints and photographs, and early maps. We conduct occasional auctions, all of which have been very successful, realising totals of up to two million dollars. The catalogues and results for these sales are accessible via the auctions link.

We are long-standing members of ANZAAB and ABA — the Australian and the British antiquarian booksellers’ associations and  exhibit regularly at book fairs.
