Since 1981, he has been writing about rare Mormon documents.
Since 1991, half of all new discoveries in Mormon history have been by him.
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.
