Fontein Books was established in Pretoria forty years ago as a publisher and bookseller

We have been active on Antiquarian Auctions since its inception a decade ago

Our current physical bookshop and art gallery are located in an 1881 Victorian house in Philippolis, which was the first settlement (1822) in Southern Africa north of the Orange River

We also now have some books in Johannesburg (telephones +27 79 546 4032 / + 27 11 783 6577).

Except where there is a reason for a damaged book to be listed, we use our bookbinder and restorer to give imperfect offerings a new lease of life
