Can we help to sell your books?
We've created a home for the best of modern first editions without the hundreds of thousands of cheap paperbacks which flood other websites.
Think of us as a high-end version of Abe.
We're focussed, and we have a customer base who are used to quality and excellent service.
We're inviting rare book dealers to showcase their titles on TheJonesBrothers.com.
How it works
1. Send book details
Send us the books you would like listed. This is as simple as sending us a list of URLs from your own site (we do all of the work to transform them into professional listings on The Jones Brothers). If they're not listed on your site, then we have a simple form to complete where you can send us the data.
2. We pay you
When a customer buys your book through our site they pay us directly. We bear all of the card charges and simply pay you the sales price less commission.
3. Send the book
You send the book to our team.
Contact us today and your books can be available for sale within 48 hours.

What books can Booksellers list?
We’re a marketplace for modern first editions. Because we want to maintain quality across our listings, The Jones Brothers make a decision on whether to accept each book or not. As guidance, we look for the following:
- First edition, first issue books
- ‘Very Good’, or ‘Fine condition’. We may look at listing ‘Good’ books if they are pre 1920 or have special provenance.
- Market value starting at £1,000 (however for interesting titles and some children’s books we list at less). The highest prices are over £100,000. This is a niche marketplace for the best of your books – not a general site for everything to get lost in.
- Good quality pictures. We’re much more likely to list books which have been photographed on a white background, similar to this one
