Astrolabe Booksellers is the leading antiquarian/ second-hand/used bookseller in Australia's island state. Proprietor Michael Sprod is a long-standing member of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers. Our premises are located on the first floor of a refurbished early colonial warehouse in Hobart's historic Salamanca Place, adjacent to the Sullivan's Cove wharves. This area was once the thriving centre of the Southern Ocean whaling trade and, then as now, the departure port for many Antarctic voyages. We carry a good range of antiquarian and second-hand books on a wide variety of subjects, specialising in works on Tasmania, Australia, Antarctica, Aborigines (especially Tasmanian), and maritime subjects.
