Imprimatur Books – Old and Rare Military Books

We specialise in:

  • Australian Unit histories (WWI, WW2 & Vietnam)
  • Special Forces

Dear friends – we are having some problems with the website hosting our books.  If you are searching for something in particular please contact us directly to request it directly by email or via the blog, or by phone.  Hopefully we will have a full listing up on the site as soon as possible.  In the meantime, we look forward to hearing from you.


The focus for Imprimatur Books is to source and supply great books for you. There is a lot of interest in this the centenary year of the Gallipoli Campaign – we have a large collection for you to choose from. Come and browse the Bookroom!


The other primary focus is the publication of Simmo – the story of Ray Simpson, one of Australia’s most decorated soldiers.  The book is due for release in September 2015 – register your interest below.   It is a ripping yarn about an incredible soldier.


THE CATEGORY LISTING IS NOT AVAILABLE AT THE MOMENT – CONTACT ME DIRECTLY.  You can download the current catalogue which is listed in the blog. Because of the rarity of most of the books they are one-offs, once gone into a private collection they are rarely seen again.


If you would like to receive the catalogue in your inbox, please register through the online link to go on the mailing list. All prices quoted are in Australian Dollars.


Be sure to visit the Facebook page where you will find daily news on books coming in – some that don’t make it to the catalogue or the website!


The Book Room in the city of Perth, WA is open by appointment only. Please call 0417 964 530 or email to make a time to visit.
