Africana Catalogues

In addition to the wide range of Africana books we stock in our shop we compile four carefully curated Africana Catalogues per year. Each catalogue contains approximately 100 of our more unusual recent acquisitions.

As these books are often signed, association or limited editions (and almost all are out of print) we often only have one copy of each item. Collating catalogues means we can provide careful descriptions and illustrations of the listed books, arranged in specific categories of interest.

Customers on our mailing list are first to receive our catalogues, so please sign up on our home page.

We also print a limited number of our Catalogues for those interested. Early editions of these have themselves become collectable!

Past Catalogues

Reminder: due to the limited availability of most of the books that we offer we cannot guarantee that any of the books listed in the catalogues below are still available. Please contact us at shop@selectbooks.co.za with the details of any book for further information.
