It's About the Books

Founded in 1994 by Richard Gabriel, a dedicated and passionate book collector, Calix Books has become one of the best sources of rare books and ephemera. Our strength is an unmatched dedication to accuracy and properly pricing our products. All of our books have been inspected and authenticated to be of high quality, and ensure to research the background of the book and provide a detailed report to you about the book, the remaining copies, and historical references. We take a great deal of pride in our presentation of our described books and ephemera, our cataloging service, and our extensive knowledge.


Online Sales

Nearly all of the valuable items we find are listed the following week on our eBay site. We also host some of our items on, a site where booksellers, collectors, and buyers search for rare and hard-to-find items such as incunabula. Biblio is also a great search engine if you are trying to gauge the value of the books that you might have. Some of the items are quite rare and are priced accordingly.

Collection Catalogs

Other items we have can be used for references when you are trying to understand a certain area of collection. For example, we have a series of catalogs published by H.P. Kraus, one of the foremost book dealers, in the 20th Century. Other informative books on books are also available as well as some rare and unusual ephemera concerning everything from religion to science to poetry.

Todd's Farm

One of our favorite locations is Todd's Farm in Rowley, Massachusetts. If you live on the North Shore of Massachusetts, or Southern New Hampshire, then Todd's Farm is close. It is only open on Sundays, and it is best to get there at first light with a flashlight, bug repellent, and cash.
