I am a history buff and sometimes I become obsessed with tracking down books that I see references to in my research. The first time I found abebooks, I had already spent hours internet browsing for an antique book. I had almost given up. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that they had it! It wasn't priced too bad despite its obscurity, and when it arrived I was pleased to find it in the condition stated on the ad. I could communicate directly with the business that would ship it and I found that very helpful. They answered my questions right away. I have since had luck with finding hard to find books on 2 other occasions. I have told my friends at the local historical society about them and they were also helped by their service. Really glad I found abebooks!
Amazon.com owns AbeBooks - they are a subsidiary company.
AbeBooks then acts as a kind of half.ebay.com for book sellers.
THE PROBLEM HERE is that AbeBooks.com does not back up customers, they simply allow their sellers to do as they wish.
If you have any problem with a seller, AbeBooks "customer service" will simply give you "sweet talk" and pretend to care. In actuality THEY WILL DO NOTHING TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Nor do they seem to be very discriminate about who they allow to sell through their site, or even REPRIMAND them in any way if they conduct business poorly.
Simply, if you buy a book through AbeBooks you are just BLINDLY BUYING THROUGH A VEIL and you have no real idea of who the actual seller is. AbeBooks is the front, and their suppliers come from across the globe. PROBLEM: AbeBooks.com doesn't care what goes on behind the scenes, and if there is a problem they will not do anything more for you to rectify the situation other than simply passing a message on to the actual seller (which may or may not be a legitimate business in a country that you were/weren't aware you were doing business with).
BEWARE of abebooks.com and the sellers that they represent; and additionally question why Amazon.com would allow their reputation to be tarnished by this company that they own. Essentially then, question the integrity of Amazon.com!

Bestilte med stor bekymring en bog der af ny her i DK koster knap 1000 kr - fandt den til 1 dollar + 14 dollar i fragt.
Da pakken ankom efter små 3 uger var det den korrekte bog i super kvalitet. Kun ganske få brugstegn og enkelte overstregninger i bogen.
Skal helt sikkert have fundet de sidste bøger jeg mangler på deres site.
I found AbeBooks when looking for a text book for uni. Like many students I'm always needing to cut costs where I can, I found a used copy for $6.14 US, a saving of nearly $60 on the price of a new book. I'd been warned against several book sites, but hadn't heard of AbeBooks. I was pleased that they didn't try to plm the book off 'as new' with the description of it's condition listed as "Shows definite wear, and perhaps considerable marking on inside." I expected a shabby but usable book to arrive. I was pleasantly surprised 2 weeks later for my book to arrive to me in Australia in much better condition than I expected. Some pages are slightly dog-eared, the back cover has some dog-earing on the bottom corner, and there is some faintly penciled-in notes inside, that's it, other than that it's like new. I was also happy that it was shrink-wrapped for postage as that kept the pages from further damage and protected it from moisture. The confirmation email also put me at ease that my order had been received. I will certainly use AbeBooks again :)
Used abebbooks several times for finding used and new textbooks (and other books too) and always find cheap book vendors through them.
Furthermore, I have never had a bad experinec with of the vendors on abebooks, always delivered!
Love those cheap indian textbooks!
Een website die vele boekwinkels in Amerika, Canada en Groot Brittannie verenigd.
Het grote voordeel is dat men op titel kan zoeken, en dan staan de gezochte boeken gerangschikt op prijs (inclusief verzendkosten naar je land).
verder zijn de verzendkosten (op de een of andere manier) erg laag gehouden, want ik weet uit ervaring dat verzendkosten uit Amerika vrij hoog zijn.
Boeken worden ook uitvoerig beschreven (materiaal, staat, evt. minpunten)
Prima site met veel moois dat je in Nederland moeilijk kan vinden.
