About Us

Hedleys Booksellers was established in 1907 by William Hedley, initially as a distributor of daily newspapers in Masterton New Zealand, but was further developed by Alexander Hedley over the next 60 years into a large independent stockholding bookshop. It is now owned and managed by David and Jenny Hedley.

Hedleys primarily stocks new books but has a growing stock of second-hand books and with this a world wide book search service to track down that
elusive title .

Hedleys specialises in New Zealand books especially New Zealand history, biography, art and books pertaining to the region of Wairarapa and the town of Masterton. Hedleys also has a small niche publishing division publishing local history; the history of nineteen century pacific exploration including Australia and New Zealand; and Australian art.

Hedleys other area of specialty is the history of popular music which has come about through a special friendship and business relationship with Genesis Publications UK and the owner Brian Roylance (www.genesis-publications.com).

Hedleys distribute Genesis books in Australia and New Zealand and co-published with Genesis Blinds & Shutters the very special 1960s photographic social history produced in a spectacular limited edition format. This book and other limited edition books from Genesis on the history of rock music are beautifully created works of art featuring such great musicians as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, David Bowie and The Who.

Hedleys are firmly placed at the quality end of bookselling and stock a wide range of books suitable for corporate or special gifts and can deliver to your door all your book needs. Hedleys provide a full right of return or exchange policy on all book selections and run a customer loyalty programme and an interesting book club with regular newsletters.
