Established in Sydney, Australia, in 1967, Gould s Book Arcade has over 75,000 books listed, mostly non-fiction. Some are quite rare, including many pamphlets. Gould's Book Arcade has over 75,000 books on line. We specialise in out of print books, publishers remainders of the last 40 years, and second hand books, catering to the general reader, students and some specialist areas. We have been located near Sydney University for over 20 years, and have bought many collections from retiring academics. Parking is easy, our shop is large and highly visible, and we have a high public profile, leading many members of the general public to sell to us. We attend all major book fairs. Australian history and politics and Australiana are our main specialty areas. The collection on labor movement and progressive politics is the broadest in Australia, and stands up well by international standards, covering Australia but also other countries. There are big sections on Sports & Hobbies, Military History, General History, Poetry, Plays, Movies, Science, Philosophy, and all areas of human interest and endeavour. Some of the recent Parliamentary tributes to the life of our founder, Bob Gould, are reproduced on our web site.
