Love this map of Israel bookseller label. Funny enough, it doesn't even say Books anywhere.
I can't read Hebrew .. maybe the top left wording says that?

It says Eretz Israel and the cities on the map are also named.

*Several* variations from this longtime bookselling concern. (Also just a note to say I'm still around and still looking for these!)

Here's Foyles in Capetown. I know they had at least one store in Dublin, but I've never seen a label from the Dublin store. Anyone have one?

Similar to the book sellers labels, here are 4 pages of music store advertising labels from the major Australian outfit Allan & Co. These come off sheet music, 78rpm record labels and the boxes for pianola rolls.

Here are some more Australian bookseller labels.

Selected Australian bookseller labels, 1.

This selection includes another version of the Grahame Book Company perf label (see above) in different colours. Also two from Anthony Horderns department store, also in Sydney.


Selected Australian bookseller labels, 2.
Selected Australian bookseller labels, 2.

This shows a selection of labels from three very well-known Australian booksellers. The first four Angus & Robertson labels are all different. The last one seems to be a version of the one above it.


Dymocks is still in the book business today, unlike the other two. The NSW Bookstall was once famous for its book displays on Sydney train station platforms. See picture.
