Welcome To Murdoch's Bookshoppe

Welcome to Murdoch's Bookshoppe! On June 15th, 2013, the 'bricks and mortar' store we had operated since 1993 was closed.

We still hope to create the serendipity of discovering a book you didn't know existed and always welcome your queries. "All books are divisible into two classes: the books of the hour, and the books of all time." (John Ruskin, Sesame and Lilies) It is our goal to seek out such volumes, and offer them to our fellow book-lovers world-wide.

New material will be added often, and will most readily be seen in the Recent Acquisitions section under the ‘Our Books’ tab above. This will showcase descriptions and images for the latest twenty volumes to be listed. Rather than being a definitive and exhaustive listing of all our inventory, these pages will present a carefully chosen, representative selection.

You may also view and search our inventory listed in $US on the Advanced Book Exchange (ABE) together with a wide variety of Catalogues arranged by Topic. Click Here.

We look forward to welcoming friends old and new to the Vancouver Rare Book and Paper Show, October 12 and 13. Find us at Booth 10. Click HERE for more information.

We welcome email requests listing any specific wants or interests you may have, or Inquiries about a specific book we have for sale, and look forward to the opportunity to assist in building your collection!
