We are a family owned and operated business based in Sequim, WA. Antiquarian Bibles are our specialty. We sell Bibles in various languages from a wide span of time periods. In addition to Bibles, we also sell a variety of nonfiction books.
We began in 2006 after Rob stumbled upon an antique Bible at a local thrift store. Though the Bible was in terrible shape, its beauty and workmanship caught Rob's eye and left him intrigued.
It wasn't long before his home office became a place to source, store, and ship antique Bibles all over the world. Thankfully, the local post office was just down the road. His wife, Jacoba, was soon on a first name basis with the staff there.
In 2020, Rob invited his son, Joe, to join the business. Joe jumped in with both feet and began learning all he could about both antique Bibles and website management. Now Rob does the sourcing and Joe does the listing and shipping. It is a privilege to be part of the preservation and distribution of these cherished texts.
Joe's favorite antique Bibles are the Geneva Bibles.
"The Geneva Bible is the Bible quoted by Shakespeare and the Bible that the Puritans carried with them across the Atlantic to America. With beautiful illustrations and ground-breaking study notes, this Bible stands apart."
Rob's favorite antique Bibles are the Family Bibles of the late 1800s.
“They were made with passion and zeal, especially considering the technology of the day. They were true family heirlooms, read and treasured for generations."
