About Africana Books

Africana Books was established By Arne Schaefer in 1998 and for 2 years since February 2016 Stefan Blank was apprenticed to take over the running of the business which culminated in a full take over from February 2018. Arne has in the meantime moved to Port Nolloth where he has opened the Namaqualand Repository but continues to give advice and words of encouragement.

Africana Books has traded internationally for over twenty years, and offers and buys good quality antiquarian books on South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world, published from several hundred years ago until the present, on a variety of subjects. All of our stock is listed on this website, and searching is easy. We make extensive use of KEYWORDS in our listings - so try them if you are not sure what you are looking for. We issue catalogues of our latest acquisitions, and/or specialist subjects every few months for local and overseas clients. Speciality lists of titles dealing with your favourite subject or region may be requested and will be emailed to you promptly. Our books are priced in US Dollars, which are converted to Rands for local clients at the ruling rate of exchange on the day of sale.
