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, or make arrangements to visit by appointment.

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 sincerely thank all of our friends, old and new, who visited our booth at the 2019 Vancouver Rare Book and Paper Show! Your support of dealers from across Canada is much appreciated.

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!
