More About Calix Books

Our History

Calix Books started as an Antiques business in the early 1970's with the picking of old Ohio furniture, refinishing the pieces to original finishes using restoration techniques and selling those pieces, wholesale to dealers. Later, Calix had several locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The main business is now books and ephemera but we still pick Todd's Farm, and local estates.

It's About Quality

Since we first started buying rare books and ephemera in 1994, Calix Books have maintained a professional and market pricing balance. The goal of Calix Books is to provide extraordinary service and rare and hard to find books and ephemera for al who wish to start book or ephemera collectingl.
