Laissez Faire Books (LFB) is an online bookseller that was originally based in New York City when it first opened in 1972. It is considered to be the largest libertarian bookseller.
From 1982 until 2007, Laissez Faire Books operated as a division of two separate non-profit corporations, the Center for Independent Thought from 1982 to 2004, and the Center for Libertarian Thought from 2005 to 2007. In November 2007, the bookstore's ownership was transferred to the International Society for Individual Liberty. In March 2011, Agora Financial acquired Laissez Faire Books.
