The Gestalt Bookshelf

Looking for hard-to-find Books about Gestalt Theory and Gestalt Psychology?

If you would like to buy specific books about Gestalt theory and Gestalt psychology you might have to deal with the problem that your local bookstore does not have any or the books you want to buy are out of print. For this reason we have made the following list of books still available for online buying (new or used/antiquarian copies). For some of these books you will find the possibility for direct online-ordering with Amazon.com.

[If you are looking for Gestalt THERAPY books please search Amazon.com and/or have a look at the special editions of the Gestalt Journal Press.]

For those books who seem to be out of print we have added links to the very useful search-machine of ABE (Advanced Book Exchange). ABE also provides the possibility to create one's own "want list" for out-of-print books - you will be notified per E-mail when one of "your" books comes up in the stock of one of the antiquarian book sellers.
