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.
