Book Auctions

ABC Bookshop / Great Books is a small internet auction house.  We specialise in regular auctions of Africana books, maps, prints and ephemera.  Subjects that are covered in our auctions include TRIBAL PEOPLE, ART, SCIENCES, ORNITHOLOGY, BOTANY, BIG GAME HUNTING, TRAVEL & EXPLORATION, MISSIONS, HISTORY, MILITARY, BIOGRAPHY, LITERATURE.  Books may range from a couple of hundred years old to those published in the last decade.

Most auctions last over a week and bids may be emailed or sent by sms.  Auctions are sent out by email (our Newsletter) and are hosted on our auction page.  The high bidder at closing time on final auction day is the winner.  Delivery charges are extra.  Prices are in South African Rands.  If a bid is received within ten minutes of closing time, then that lot goes into overtime and the previous bidder gets ten minutes to respond and so on, until one of the bidders declines to bid further.  My decision on the winner is final.
