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 our websites by thousands of sellers located in more than 50 countries. Our epic selection stretches from manuscripts created before the invention of the Gutenberg Press to the latest signed bestsellers. We 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.

Use our search boxes to find your desired book - you can search by author, title, keyword or ISBN. Our advanced search helps you find books by other key criteria including price, publisher, publishing date, bookseller location and more.
Your order is shipped directly from the bookseller. We guarantee the condition of every book as it is described on our website. You are eligible for a refund within 30 days if dissatisfied due to a bookseller error or if your book fails to arrive.
AbeBooks is a secure website for online shopping. Your personal information is protected at all times, plus our employees and booksellers follow strict security policies.

An ecommerce pioneer, our company was founded in 1995 and our first website, AbeBooks.com, was launched a year later. We're a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. after being acquired in December 2008. Our headquarters are located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and we also have an office in Munich, Germany.

Our 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. Our company also includes BookFinder.com, a price comparison shopping service dedicated to books.
