Specialists in the natural heritage, anthropology, military campaigns, traditions and exploration of southern Africa.
We specialize in the natural heritage, anthropology, military campaigns and traditions of our region. However, we remain alert to all collecting genres, including photo books, scripophily, Struggle literature, and ephemera in many fields. Whereas we are particularly excited by rarities, more familiar books are certainly part of our business. We are based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and operate largely as a mail order dealership. Over the years, we have established a reputation for scrupulous catalogue descriptions and attention to customer satisfaction. Besides membership of the Independent Online Booksellers Association, Christison Rare Books is a founder member of the Southern African Book Dealers Association. Whatever your interests or budget, we believe that you will find our pricing reasonable and our service friendly. Our decades of experience in safely shipping rare books around the world provide the assurance that your purchase will reach you unharmed. We are always in the market for collections and single items of note, and pay well for interesting material. Even if you are not from our area, please feel free to let us know if you have books, documents, photographs, or curiosities to sell, as we are ready to travel in pursuit of worthwhile articles.
