A Brief Guide to some Recommended Bookstores in Dunedin, New Zealand:


Renaissance Books - That is us. We currently have over 8,300 titles in stock. Our specialties include antiquarian, literature, travel, and Maori. We do not run an open shop, but appointments can be made to view particular titles.


Scribes Books - Scribes are one of the largest and busiest secondhand bookstores in Dunedin. They are located on the one way heading north, at the corner of St David and Great King Streets. They are open every day of the year except for Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Christmas Day. They are discerning in the quality and condition of their books. They pay very good prices for suitable stock, or alternatively they have a generous store credit system. They do not list their books on the internet. Their phone number is (03) 477 6874.


University Bookshop - Dunedin's premier bookstore for new books. A "Non-Stop Sale" runs on the first floor.


Vintage Books - Vintage Books are another internet based store, although appointments can be made to visit. They are located at Broad Bay, which is an interesting drive along the Peninsula road just out of the city area. They specialise in New Zealand titles, including regional histories, military, art, literature, and sport. Their contact phone numbers are (03) 478 0448 or Mobile 021 1174479.
