Since 1981, he has been writing about rare Mormon documents.
Since 1991, half of all new discoveries in Mormon history have been by him.
Specializing in the (Palmyra, 1830) first edition Book of Mormon.
For 35 years, I have built my collection with simple, old-fashioned principles:
My ethical standards are rigidly based on the Scriptures:
My clean record and reputation
I have been purchasing books at top prices for 35 years, and people are 99% happy with the price I paid. I am also well-liked by other serious collectors. Keep in mind, though, I am trying to buy your books at fair-market (generally full-retail) prices; whereas dealers want them at profitable bargains, and libraries want them donated for freeI am an indirect competitor. Not coincidentally, I have had competitors say that to have so many Mormon books, I must be taking books from libraries; and conversely I have had dealers write that I have been unfairly competitive when I paid too much money for Mormon booksexactly opposite perspectives.
The competition between collectors and libraries is fierce, because collectors pay so much more for rare books than do libraries. I am in my mid-50s, but when I was a college student in my 20s, a Utah library accused me of not returning a college library book here in Missouri. However, I was not in Missouri at the time, and I brought-forth my credit card receipts and cellular phone records to prove it. Afterward, a Missouri university police sergeant was convicted in that case. I have been buying rare books for 35 years and have never been in a jail, been to a trial, or been convicted of any crime. I have lived in one house for 20 years, had unchanged phone numbers for 20 years, and had the same website for 20 years. I continue on, faithfully collecting, and unstopped in my research and integrity.
I keep the highest possible standard of principles and integrity. You will not find anyone else buying Mormon books that will make the promises that I have made above. For more information, read my family values page at http://www.Hajicek.com/Values.htm.
