Archives Fine Books


With over a million fine old books from all genres and eras crowded into the ceiling to floor dusty shelves of Archives, this unique Brisbane CBD bookstore is the kind of place to get lost in for days.

Fittingly occupying an early 20th century warehouse (part of the Charlotte St Group) Archives is a veritable goldmine of rare editions, obscure prints and collectables. Military, theatre, Shakespeare, Beekeeping, Boy’s annuals, plays, Millinery design, Poetry, Psychiatry, History, a brilliant collection of collectable children’s classics…the list is endless.

In fact if somebody wrote it once it’s probably here so wander the endless corridors and weep at how much you’ll never know then rejoice at finding that out of print book you always wanted to read.
