Polar Books

We are an exclusively internet/mail order business and now have our own website at where more books can be found along with interesting links about Antarctica including South Georgia.

We offer rare antiquarian and secondhand books and ephemera in our specialist areas of Antarctica, Arctic, whaling, polar travel and exploration.

Our aim is to provide a personal service. Please ask for any advice, help or information you need. We will reply by email as quickly as possible.

We reserve the right to withdraw an item from sale at any time until confirming your order.

We are also interested in buying books.
