About this seller

***Please Note our stock is based in Cape Town, South Africa.*** Rare Collections is a company founded on the passion for books, the written word and the treasures contained within their pages. We specialize in rare collectable items, predominantly sourced from the USA and Europe. We have a wide area of interest, but have a particular focus in fine press books, modern first editions, speculative fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, horror and gothic literature), natural science, prints and related ephemera. We have an extensive catalogue of available titles; some of which are not on our website.

Shipping Terms

We make exclusive use of tracked courier services for the safety of the items and for the reliability of deliveries. Therefore we require a physical address and can not deliver to PO Boxes.

Please note: For our economy shipments we use a consolidated tracked shipping service which greatly reduces the cost of shipping. Books are picked up every Tuesday and fly out the following Thursday. Due to only flying out once a week wait times can be up to 20 days with this option.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Abebooks profile is listed via my Australian Business. However the book store is not based in Melbourne. We are based in Cape Town, South Africa. This is due to payment issues on Abebooks side for South African banks. This was a solution Abebooks and we came up with together to bypass the Payment gateway issue for right now. All our other selling platforms correctly displays our place of origin as Cape Town, South Africa. Shipment takes place from Cape Town South Africa.
