About the Bookseller

The Known World Bookshop is located in the historic city of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. We have a broad range of books on most subjects: art, history, good literature, children's classics, philosophy, natural history, Australian, military and more. There's also an espresso coffee bar, a wide selection of aromatic teas, a chess set and comfortable couch set before the old fireplace, and a piano which everyone is welcome to play. We can also offer accommodation in our boutique apartment above the bookshop here in Ballarat's main thoroughfare, Sturt St, available for overnight and short stays. See our website:, or email me at We pride ourselves on our collection here at the Known World, and on the service we offer our customers, both visitors through the door, and those ordering online. If you order any of our books online, you can be assured of the same courteous service that we afford our customers here at the shop your enquiries will be answered promptly, your orders processed quickly, books packaged carefully, and posted usually the day following the processing of your order. Please note that ABE's star rating system is determined according to fulfillment rates, and has nothing to do with service offered to clients, inaccurate descriptions or lateness of dispatch. Many open bookshops, which, in the course of their daily business, lose books to theft, or have books misplaced by customers, believe that ABE's rating system unfairly discriminates against them. I hope you enjoy browsing our collection.
