Gould's Book Arcade specialises in out of print books, publishers remainders of the last 30 years, and second hand books, catering to the general reader, students and some specialist areas.
Australian history and politics and Australiana are the main specialty areas. The collection on labor movement and left-wing politics is the broadest in Australia, and stands up well by international standards, covering Australia but also other countries. The Art collection contains thousands of books. There are big sections on Military History, Poetry, Plays, Fiction, Movies, Science, Philosophy, and all areas of human interest and endeavour.
