About Hedleys Booksellers
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
