Time Out Melbourne

Popular second-hand bookstore City Basement Books, formerly of Elizabeth Street, has been in operation for years. Specialising in rare and antiquarian titles, it’s the kind of place a bibliophile could get lost in for hours – though if you’ve something specific in mind you can also shop via their website. The store Twitter feed (@citybasement) also provides regular updates on new arrivals.
