About Us

ANKH is a New and Second-hand book shop started and still run by Jennifer Jaeger since 1989. (Jennifer has a BA from Swinburne University with majors in Literature, Media & Philosophy.)

Originally Ankh Antiquarian Books was a book exchange in Oakleigh with only one shelf of Ancient Egypt books. It moved to its current address in 1991. The book exchange was sold and my interest in Ancient Egypt and other ancient civilisations was given free rein. In 2019 Jennifer was joined by her daughter Laura in the business, the next generation of booksellers.

Now the book shop has excellent facilities and a stock of almost 5000 books, plus the ability to source books in Australia and overseas. Visits are by Appointment. Ankh Antiquarian Books has an extensive web presence.
