THE BOOK SHUTTLE is proud to offer for sale a collection of books from the Charles Lloyd Jones Estate. Charles Lloyd Jones (1932 to 2010) was a decendent of David Jones who started the iconic department store DAVID JONES in 1838, Australia's oldest department store. The DAVID JONES company was run by the Jones family until 1980, Charles Lloyd Jones being the last family member to preside over the company. He was the second child of Sir Charles Lloyd Jones and his third wife Hannah.
Sir Charles Lloyd Jones (1878 to 1958), grandson to David Jones, took over the helm of DAVID JONES in 1920, and is best known for launching the opulent Elizabeth Street store in Sydney. He was a patron of the arts and was described as "a rare combination of artist and businessman."
The collection of books that we have in stock at THE BOOK SHUTTLE reflect the many interests that the family had in art, literature and history. If you are interested in browsing more books from the Charles Lloyd Jones book collection please CLICK HERE.
