EmailAbout Us


Jeppestown Press

Jeppestown Press is a small, London-based publishing house. We specialise in the reprinting of interesting, vintage African reference and history books, and out-of-print works dealing with food, wine and the hospitality industry.

We regret to say that we do not publish new manuscripts; typescripts or book proposals sent to us will not be acknowledged or returned.

Our books are available for purchase through this web site at a 10% discount on the cover price. They are also sold by Internet mail order through the Africa Book Centre, and, and you can always ask your local book shop anywhere in the world to order them - simply quote the title and ISBN number, which is listed in the Specifications section on each book page. In South Africa we recommend ordering through Exclusive Books or online through (formerly Kalahari).
