Appraisals

Owen Kubik offers appraisals on books of all types for insurance purposes, probate court, the IRS, and similar professional needs. Please note fees are charged on all appraisals and we are unable to offer any valuations or guidance by phone or email. Kubik has been performing appraisals for three decades and has numerous institutional clients across the country.

Company History

Kubik Fine Books Ltd is based in Dayton, Ohio, and was established in 1985. The company is owned and managed by Owen D. Kubik and is an accredited member of the ABAA (Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America) and the ILAB (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers). As such, we are pledged to the highest standards of ethics and professional behavior.  Kubik,  a former President of the Midwest Chapter of the ABAA, sees himself as a bridge between the generations of older pre-internet booksellers and younger post-internet ones.

The Kubik Team on the Road

In addition to buying and selling books on-line and at our brick-and-mortar shop, the Kubik Team ventures out to exhibit at book shows and festivals across the country.  These range from street festivals where we bring vintage classics to the New York Antiquarian Book Fair where we showcase our finest material.

Our Beliefs

Kubik Fine Books Ltd offers professional, ethical, and honorable service to all of our clients. We treat our customers as individuals and try to provide quality books and personal service at a fair price. We promise to respect the privacy and dignity of our customers at all times. As a way of sharing our gifts with others, we donate a portion of our proceeds to helping needy people and animals in the local community.

When not dealing with books, Kubik enjoys spending time with his family outdoors hiking and horseback riding.
