About Us

Hordern House, founded by Anne McCormick and Derek McDonnell is an internationally renowned bookshop, specialising in rare books, manuscripts and paintings.

Included in our extensive stock of rare and select material is our specialization in voyages and travels (with special interest in the Pacific & Australia), natural history and colour-plate material, paintings and voyage art, historical maps and manuscripts.

We issue regular catalogues and exhibit at Fairs in Australia, Asia, Europe and America.

Our business is in the heart of Surry Hills, five minutes from the centre of Sydney. We occupy an entire floor of a converted warehouse where we have created a customised environment for our work and the display of rare books, manuscripts & paintings.
