AbeBooks is an online marketplace for books and a remarkable place to work. Millions of new, used, rare and out-of-print books are offered for sale through the AbeBooks websites from thousands of booksellers around the world. We helped to revolutionize the used book business. AbeBooks became a subsidiary of Amazon.com Inc. after being acquired in December 2008. Our mission is to help people find and buy any book from any bookseller and our business stretches around the world with six international sites — AbeBooks.com, AbeBooks.co.uk, AbeBooks.de, AbeBooks.fr, AbeBooks.it, and IberLibro.com, as well as ZVAB.com, a marketplace for German books.
AbeBooks.com went live in 1996 and we have been growing ever since. The unique inventory of books for sale from booksellers includes the world's finest antiquarian treasures dating back to the 15th century, countless out-of-print gems, millions of signed books, millions of used copies, a vast selection of college textbooks and new books too.
