Canterbury Books is a member of IOBA, the Independent Online Bookseller's Association.

Canterbury Books is a family managed, independent online bookseller offering secondhand books since 1992. We carry a general and varied inventory of used and out-of-print titles for the general reader, the student, and the family. Scarce, odd, and antiquarian copies are also offered for the collector. Overall, we stock about 80% nonfiction, 60% hardcover, and 30% trade paperback. We own and have in-hand each book described and listed for sale - with few exceptions as single copies. Most titles are in English, but other languages are represented, most notably French.

We answer all enquiries and will do our best to accommodate you.

All prices here are in Canadian currency. For shipping destinations within Canada, you may prefer to order on our website Canterbury Books because shipping rates are set for each province (rather than just one rate for the entire country) and Other Lettermail is displayed automatically.
