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 results and catalogue for our December 2018 auction are now available online 

We are long-standing members of ANZAAB and ABA -- the Australian and the British antiquarian booksellers' associations. We will be exhibiting at ANZAAB's  2019 Melbourne Rare Book Fair, we hope you can join us there.
