Helping buyers and sellers across the world since 1996
AbeBooks offers books, fine art and collectibles, helping you discover and buy the things you love. Trusted independent sellers from around the world offer for sale millions of new, used and rare books, as well as art and collectibles through the AbeBooks websites.
Fill your bookshelves with used books, the latest bestsellers, rare books such as first editions and signed copies, new and used textbooks, and forgotten out-of-print titles from years gone by.
Decorate your home with fine art, ranging from vintage posters and prints to etchings and original paintings. Add to your collection with vintage magazines and periodicals, comics, photographs, maps and manuscripts, and paper collectibles ranging from autograph letters to movie scripts and other ephemera.
Millions of books and other objects are listed for sale on AbeBooks’ websites by thousands of sellers located in more than 50 countries. AbeBooks’ epic selection stretches from manuscripts created before the invention of the Gutenberg Press to the latest signed bestsellers. AbeBooks have customers in almost every country of the world, who are buying books and other printed matter published in multiple languages.
The magic of AbeBooks is filling your shelves with affordable books, discovering that long-lost title, finding an out-of-print or collectible book that's become hard to find, or discovering something magical from the past that you simply did not know existed - perhaps a letter from a famous author, a 19th century postcard or a copy of a long-defunct magazine.
An ecommerce pioneer, AbeBooks’ company was founded in 1995 and our first website, AbeBooks.com, was launched a year later. AbeBooks is a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. after being acquired in December 2008. AbeBooks’ headquarters are located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and AbeBooks also have an office in Munich, Germany.
AbeBooks’ business stretches around the world with six international sites - AbeBooks.com, AbeBooks.co.uk, AbeBooks.de, AbeBooks.fr, AbeBooks.it, IberLibro.com, and ZVAB.com. AbeBooks’ company also includes BookFinder.com, a price comparison shopping service dedicated to books.
