The best-selling Guinness World Records has been publishing its yearly lists of extremes and achievements since 1955.

Russell Books has collected many copies since opening a store for used and new books in Victoria in 1991. The Times Colonist Book Sale has been a major source.

The event was planned to celebrate the move across Fort Street to the new location, which is nearly complete.
