Welcome to Murdoch's Bookshoppe!

From April of 1993 until June of 2013, we operated a 'bricks and mortar' store from the same location in the Fraser Valley region of British Columbia, Canada. Our service is now provided through the internet and, as we have listed only a small portion of our inventory, we welcome your queries.
Email us at murdochsbooks@shaw.ca

We look forward to having the opportunity to assist in building your collection! Open by appointment.

Terms, Conditions and Policies


Your privacy is assured. We will never disclose email addresses or any information concerning our clientele to a third party. We do not keep on file any Credit Card data. Our voice mail is only accessible by the partners.


When you have located a title you are interested in purchasing, and have clicked on the 'Details' or 'Read More' links, a single page devoted only to that book will be displayed. The bottom of that page automatically generates an order form, specific to that title.

We will then send you a total including shipping (see below), and make payment arrangements.

Payment and Shipping

Prices quoted are net, and in $Cdn.

Payment may be tendered by e-transfer (for Canadian residents), Visa, or MasterCard. Inquire if you wish to use an alternative method.

We always pack carefully, and prefer Expedited shipping with Insurance and tracking for your protection. Within Canada this charge is $15 for an average size, hard cover book; $20 for shipments to the contiguous United States. Oversize books (Royal Octavo, Quarto or Folio volumes), and shipments overseas will incur extra shipping costs. Contact us for a quote at the time of ordering.

All items are single copies, and subject to prior sale. We make every effort by text or image to accurately reflect the condition of our offerings. Books are returnable if not as described within 10 days of receipt and upon prior notice to us. Books must be returned in the same condition as when sent. Title to books remains with the Vendor until payment is received in full.

We Buy Books

We're always grateful for the opportunity to buy interesting books in Fine or Near Fine condition - from a single title to personal libraries - but take the same care in choosing those we want as our customers do when buying from us! Condition and rarity in our areas of specialty are primary considerations. Please inquire first, and arrange for an appointment if you have books you wish us to consider.
