More Book Search Forms

NEWS: This page has shrunk! I've removed the listings for search engines of sites which I found to be indexed at ABE, BiblioFind or BiblioCity to increase the usefulness of the page.
Most of these forms are for specialty or European used/out-of-print book dealers. Let me know if there are other dealers with on-line search forms which belong on this page. (Click on the logo to go to the homepage, click on the name link for the search page.)
