Founded by the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin, Bookbarn International is one of the largest booksellers in the UK shipping new, used, and rare books from their warehouse in Somerset. Currently holding around 850,000 books, trading internationally via third-party platforms like Amazon, Abebooks, and Barnes & Noble every day. After two successful campaigns with Crowd2Fund, Bookbarn International returns again to raise money to acquire Cambridge Rare Books Ltd, a company recognised to have the finest and rarest of books.

"The UK's best book warehouse"

We are a small, independent business with big ideas. In January 2013 we started to transform and rebuild Bookbarn - giving the old business a transformation with global reach. Our impressive warehouse houses nearly a million books – one of the only ones of its kind, where members of the public are free to visit and browse, in the UK. We are one of the largest booksellers in the country and provide new, second-hand, and rare books, acquired from book dealers, schools, libraries, and so on.

At Bookbarn International we love finding homes for as many used books as possible and sell globally to 10 different countries. We’re on 21 different online platforms that open our reach to 245 different countries internationally. On average 600 orders are processed daily on platforms such as Amazon, Abebooks, eBay, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones Marketplace, and Biblio. Our Somerset location was opened in 2017 and has been a great destination for bibliophiles and those simply looking for an interesting day out, enjoying the perks of our wonderful on-site café.

Acquiring Cambridge Rare Books Ltd is an exciting new opportunity as our company takes pride in acquiring the finest collections of rare books, which sets us apart from the rest of our competitors.
