database structure screenshot of ISBN Database of 18.4 Million Library Books (Title, Author, ISBN, Cover Images)

Description: This ISBN database has 18.4 million unique book titles and 8.9 million cover images in JPEG files. It is the ultimate library books / ISBN database on the entire Internet, growing by thousands every day (updates are released every 6 or 12 months). From the first version with a humble 4 million titles in 2009, after 5 major upgrades, it currently holds 18.4 million book titles with over 20 data fields for each of them, no inferior to the in-house databases of Google's or Amazon's.

There are also over 8.9 million book cover images (230 GB in download size) and 3,274 author icon images included in the attachment, named after the 13-digits ISBN of the book such as 9780123456789.jpg. Check out some samples. There are 3,272 authors identified in the author table with a name and a biography for each of them. The 1st million books from the book table are associated with subjects (sub_subject, sub_sub_subject), while the rest of the books have their own subjects field containing the subjects of the book.

You will immediately be able to download the database files after purchase, but NOT the images package. Due to its massive size (that's growing!), we will prepare the images package for download within 8 hours to 2 days and send it your way. Should you be in a hurry, contact us.
