Grand Opening

February 3, 2024

We are pleased to announce the launch of our online resale bookshop. In it you will find the works of Rudolf Steiner and other esoteric materials. By donating and/or purchasing books from us, you are not only helping to preserve these valuable resources, but you help to fund our work on the Rudolf Steiner Archive. Together, we can ensure these important works reach a broader audience.

Esoteric Library Recirculation

Do you have more books than you can handle or concerns about what will happen to your library when you are gone? Through our store, donated books can be recirculated in the community and given new life.

1. Donate Books

Our inventory comes solely from donated books. When you give books to our nonprofit, Steiner Online Library, you will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes and at the same time help us to fund the Rudolf Steiner Archive. Consider gifting your library to Steiner Online Library in your will to ensure these resources are preserved and utilized.

2. Buy Used Books

Purchase books from us to prevent these treasures from ending up in a large bookstore warehouse or, heaven forbid, a landfill somewhere. Give them a new home by adding them to your personal collection.

We are thrilled to offer rare and vintage books at more affordable prices than other retailers. Our inventory will change frequently as more books are donated, so check back often!

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate international orders at this time. If you reside outside of the United States and would like to place an order, please consider making arrangements with someone within the United States to receive your order and forward it to you. We will continue to explore ways to mitigate our risks of international shipping.

3. Charitable Benefit

Proceeds from sales support the Rudolf Steiner Archive through its nonprofit, Steiner Online Library, US Federal Tax ID 85-2621701. With your support, we will continue to make the work of Rudolf Steiner and other anthroposophical materials accessible and searchable online in English.
