Help with international edition, new, & used textbooks
What is an international edition?
An international edition is a version of a textbook or other book that has been published for distribution outside the U.S. Most international editions have different ISBNs than the U.S. edition. International editions often have different covers, usually contain the same content, and sometimes are printed on lower-quality paper. Alibris allows the sale of international editions, except for international editions that are not authorized by the publisher or author for importation into, or sale in, the U.S. and those that may not otherwise lawfully be imported into, or sold in, the U.S., Canada, or Australia. more on international editions

Sell your textbooks back to us! At the end of your semester, remember that we may buy back your textbooks—whether or not you bought them from us. We may also buy back literature, study guides, and more. Before you sell back your textbook to your college bookstore or to another textbook buyback program, come back to our marketplace and see how much cash your textbooks will bring you. See that "Cash for Your Textbooks" form at the top-right of this page? Just enter your textbook ISBNs there, as well as other book ISBNs, and click the button for a quote of how much we'll pay you.
