Caxton Books is a specialised book supplier to various markets throughout southern Africa. These include primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions, academic, corporate, city and provincial libraries, government departments, courts of law from magistrates to the appeal and constitutional courts and private sector business from mining houses, legal firms, investment banks and hospitals to medical practices.

While satisfying the needs of any institution, public or private sector, we also cater for individuals who are struggling to find books that are not available in most retail bookshops.

Our supply process is controlled from source through our worldwide network of publishers, wholesalers and distributors. We obtain our requirements from the most competitive point of supply in the USA, Europe or South Africa to provide the most effective service. Our approach is flexible and we will tailor our service to your order for one copy of any book, one copy of many books or many copies of one book.

Lead times on telephonic/faxed/email/web queries/orders can run up to 36 hours currently. For quick help please call on our shop.

We have hired extra staff to cope with the seasonal demand but will struggle to answer all telephone calls promptly at times for which we apologise in advance.

We pre-order all titles used by our contracted schools and other bestsellers. Due to the seasonal nature of textbooks and the second hand market we will not always be completely accurate. We are not waiting for your order before we order your books!

Out of stock locally supplied books should take 7 to 21 days if the publisher has stock. Out of stock foreign sourced books should take 30 to 40 days if the publisher has stock. Reprinting books will take up to 8 weeks.
