We have been selling out-of-print and rare books for some time now with our current web site, Felix Rare Books running since 2008.
I am a Bibliophile; an otherwise rational member of the community consumed by the love of Books. It gives me great pleasure to handle any printed work that has something important to say, but most of all I cherish Rare Editions, Finely Printed Texts, beautifully Illustrated Books, and Volumes Scarce and unprocurable except by knowledgeable means. The mute but Articulate ranks of Old Leather Bindings and time-mellowed spines that climb in order of size from floor to ceiling in the house where I am writing, exude a sense of ageless serenity and unruffled calm. Looking at close-packed rows of Octavos and Duodecimos that top the dusted oak shelves, the 18th. Century, Quartos in their blind-stamped, immediately below them, then down at the ponderous Folios, secure behind their bevelled wooden-boards and coats of sprinkled calf.
I know of the decades that have emerged into Centuries since their original owners unpacked the parcels that brought them home. Now they are with me, collected over many years. It was once said that Books are ‘The lasting Mansions of the Dead’…They have become my faithful and trusted friends and the intimate companions of my everyday life. To part with one of them disturbs me. To lose them all would translate me to a barren existence and a life lacking it chief intellectual comfort and most relaxing pleasure.
My collection includes;- Rare, & Antiquarian Books & Stamps with a massive category of style and choice.
I have over £7million in stock, in Rare Books & Rare Stamps on the site now, with many more rare books/stamps in my collection of 5,000 books and 350,000 stamps;-that I will offer in the coming months.

Our Bookvault has several million pounds worth of rare and antique Bibles and rare antiquarian books.
You can select a category from our menu to browse our books online. No other booksite in the world can begin to compare to our massive collection of rare and antique Bibles. Unlike museum collections, however, our treasures are all available for sale. Many people are quite surprised to discover that these items could be for sale at any price. It is often assumed that, “Surely any First Edition 1611 King James Bible, or 14th Century Wycliffe Manuscript could not possibly be available for sale.” The serious collector or investor will be pleasantly surprised to find that not only are such extraordinarily rare items available; their prices reflect only a fraction of what their extreme rarity and obvious historical significance would seem to demand.
All items are available for your private examination in your home or office prior to purchase. Both the authenticity of the items and the confidentiality of the purchase is guaranteed. To discuss methods of payment, or any other enquirys regarding our services simply Contact Us
Please remember: the items on our website represent LESS THAN FIVE PERCENT of our currently available inventory… what you see here is just “the tip of the iceberg”! We have got (or can get) almost anything you can imagine, and we welcome your requests by Emails, so let us know if you don’t see what you want.
