Share Article

Biblio.com, one of the world's largest marketplaces for used, rare, and out-of-print books, and Biblion Ltd., the foremost British based dealer marketplace announced the re-launch of the Biblion properties, http://www.biblion.com and http://www.biblion.co.uk today.

Work on the new releases of the sites has been ongoing and has been a Beta test phase for several weeks.

Biblio.com will manage the sites, while Biblion Ltd. staff will maintain marketing and PR relations in the UK and Europe. The two companies agreed to work together in early April.

“One of the primary reasons we chose to work with Biblio.com is that they ensured us they could place Biblion's web properties into the marketplace quickly, and they have a proven track record for stability and innovation in online bookselling. They have stayed on schedule, and far exceeded our expectations in preparing the sites for re-release,” said Leo Harrison, the founder of Biblion.

Biblio.com provides the technology for two other clients in the online bookselling world, http://www.iobabooks.com, and http://www.biblioz.com. Technology has always been the strong suit of Biblio.com and the company intends to expand in this area.

Biblion.co.uk has already signed more than 200 independent booksellers to list their books on the new site, operating primarily under http://www.biblion.co.uk. More than 300,000 books are already available for purchase on the site.

Biblion.com:

The biblion.com website was conceived as an extension of the shop of the same name in London’s Mayfair. Initially the website was conceived for the use of UK dealers only, but so many requests were made by overseas dealers, that the decision to ‘go international’ was made. With over 500 dealers and 3 million books at the last count, the biblion.com site has long been a stalwart of the online rare bookselling community and is pressing forward with new developments to help it offer the same great service to more book hunters and sellers in the 21st century.

Biblio.com:

Biblio.com Inc. is now one of the leading sources for used, rare, out-of-print, and hard-to-find books in the world. In the recent past Biblio.com has provided e-commerce solutions for the Independent Online Booksellers Association, as well as BiblioQuest International in Australia. Substantial growth in the last two years has allowed Biblio.com to go from a fledgling company to becoming the third largest site of its kind in the world. Biblio.com currently offers 38 million titles from 5000 independent booksellers in 36 countries through its online community of websites.
