Caxton Books

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.
