Archives Fine Books, Charlotte St nr cnr of George St, Brisbane City, Queensland, Australia 070205-1

Archives Fine Books is on Charlotte St, Brisbane City, near the corner of George St (click here to see the exact location).

I heard about Archives when I first visited Brisbane in 1998 – it’s a huge bookshop that has over a million books on site. When I moved in 2002 I wanted to study military history, so I poked around and found all three volumes of JFC Fuller’s Military History of the Western World there – and I was hooked.

(The English edition is called The Decisive Battles of the Western World and their Influence upon History)

Wes at the I Love Brisbane blog also has a picture of the outside of the building, featuring the stonework saying, oddly “John Mills Himself”.
