The Known World Bookshop started life as Buninyong Books in the little gold-mining township of Buninyong in 2001. We moved to Ballarat, and operated as the Known World Bookshop for eight years, establishing a reputation as one of country Victoria's best secondhand bookshops. We moved to a beautiful 1870s building in the township of Linton temporarily, and are now about to open in our permanent home at 28 Main Road, Ballarat, a wonderful precinct of historic buildings and interesting cafes, restaurants and antique shops. We are proud to offer the same selection of carefully curated books covering a wide range of topics including history, natural history, literature, children's, the old and unusual, Ballarat and local history, philosophy, art, military and more. We pride ourselves on our collection here at the Known World, and on the service we offer our customers, both visitors through the door, and those ordering online. If you order any of our books online, you can be assured of the same courteous service that we afford our customers here at the shop. Your enquiries will be answered promptly, your orders processed quickly, books packaged carefully, and posted usually the day following the processing of your order. I hope you enjoy browsing our collection. Michelle
