About AbeBooks

Helping buyers and sellers across
the world since 1996

AbeBooks offers books, fine art and collectables, 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 collectables 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 collectables 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 collectable 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.
