About Us

We are a general antiquarian bookshop located in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. Business hours are by appointment only (not open to the public). We specialize in modern first editions and other collectible books and work hard to offer a wide selection of items that fit any budget. We are also a large scale print shop and are able to make a wide selection of high-quality facsimile dust jackets. These dust jackets are not for sale and are only offered to compliment books that may no longer have their original jacket, or for books that were never issued one. All facsimile dust jackets are labeled as such - no exceptions.  

The Rare Book Company is run by Patrick Mullins. Patrick has been collecting and selling antiquarian books for over 20 years. He earned an English degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, studied at The School for Bookbinding Arts, and is a former teacher.

Please feel free to reach out to us at info@therarebookcompany.com if there is something you are looking for that is not listed on our website. 



The Rare Book Company is a proud member of the Virginia Antiquarian Booksellers Association.
