The Saturday book sale also helps celebrate the RHSV’s new opening hours, which now include Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with the exception of public holidays, such as the Queen’s Birthday, Christmas and New Year’s. Visit the RHSV to view exhibitions and collections, utilise the archives, attend lectures and events and much more.

The historical book sale will feature a huge assortment of books, both new and second-hand, as well as books that are signed, in mint condition, rare and/or out-of-print.

Some of the subjects of the books include:
• Sport
• WWI history
• Biographies
• Railways
• American history
• Genealogy
• Local history
• Australian history

Of special interest this year will be many books from the estate of the RHSV’s late, esteemed member, Doug Gunn who had an impressive collection of historical books, including many titles about Victorian local history, bushwalking, wild flora and fauna of Australia, land and sea exploration and most interestingly, his antiquarian book collection.
