Bookdealers – 30 Years Worth of Collectibles
Bookdealers has a verified passion for collecting unique book editions, graphic novels, biographies and non-fiction titles. For over thirty years, they have been bringing Joburg book lovers the best collectible and used books. What started out as one quirky store in Yeoville, has grown to five stores scattered across Joburg. Still delivering that quirkiness, Bookdealers stores are a literature lovers paradise.
Bookdealers has an expansive catalogue of titles. Offering everything from African literature, to science fiction and fantasy, as well as classic novels and plays. In many of their used copies you will find inscriptions, giving these books a sense of history. While to some this may devalue the book, to true collectors it only enhances the quality of the paperback. If there is a book that you have been scouring shelves for year after year without any luck, visit Bookdealers. Their staff are always knowledgeable and willing to go to the ends of the earth to find your perfect book. You can also order from their online store, which is able to source books from all over the world.
University students familiar with Bookdealers magic will tell you that this is the place to find literature set books, anthropology, psychology and sociology titles and even history books. As a student of literature, I can vouch that Bookdealers have saved me countless pennies. Whether it be English studies novels or obscure Shakespearean titles, they have it all. And, if they don’t, they will find it for you.
If like me, you can’t get your hands on enough modernist play scripts, visit a Bookdealers store. Here you can find an array of Beckett, Williams, Miller, Stoppard and Pinter titles. But, if the modernists aren’t quite up your alley, check out Bookdealers range of South African plays and poetry. Of course you will find the classics, including Fugard’s Master Harold and The Boys (1982) and Slabolepsky’s Saturday Night at the Palace. However, Bookdealers are not only about used books and dusty old covers. They also invest in new editions to keep you coming back for more. Students can pick up theory titles on theatre, poetry and literature as well. Trust me when I write that it is often cheaper to purchase an academic anthology through Bookdealers than pay university library late fees!
Those of you who have left your school years behind you can also enjoy a trip to Bookdealers. Collectors will be delighted by their stock of one-of-a-kind signed and dedicated author’s editions. Hunt through their treasure trove to find yourself special and limited editions. Musicians, there is something here for you too. A few of the Bookdealers stores keep sheet music and old records stored away. There is bound to be a priceless collectible tucked away at one of these stores, so make sure to pop by when you have ample time.
