Summer Reading Catalogue 2023

Welcome to Abbey's Bookshop

Abbey's Bookshop at 131 York Street in the heart of Sydney (right next to the Queen Victoria Building) is an iconic Sydney independent bookstore known for its specialisations in history, science and crime fiction - but of course we cover the full range of categories. Since 1968 we've been curating a distinctive collection sourced from publishers large and small, and academic presses from around the world - where ideas grow.

Our long-standing customers express our place in their lives with comments like this one, "Yours is the best shop of its kind in the country so please keep going." So hopefully that gives you an idea of what we do and the passion we bring to it. Our customers are life-long learners and knowledge-seekers and if that sounds like you, then please say hello and come on in to our Aladdin's cave for readers.

• Browse online below - click books to see more info or use the slider to zoom up to an easy-to-read size.

• Pick up a copy in-store - 131 York Street (across from QVB).

• Download the PDF version: Click the download arrow button (see buttons at bottom right). You can then zoom the view in Adobe Acrobat Reader, to read the book descriptions at a comfortable size.

• Use 'Order Notes' to ask for a catalogue and we'll put one in with your order.
