Now that the nights are growing longer, we are pleased to announce our latest e-catalogue, Enlightened Times. Combat winter doldrums and general taedium vitae with these sparkling 18th-century offerings. The Age of Reason is well-represented across a variety of genres and languages, from figurative leading lights like Johnson, Swift, and Pascal to literal electricity (with bonus Jansenism vs. Jesuitry!).
“Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.” - Blaise Pascal, Pensées
"Ken Sanders' rare books is heaven for any book lover. I may or may not have got choked up when surrounded in some of the more expensive books in the back. There are some real treasures here if you're willing to explore. My heart felt like it overflowed in both amazement and gratitude to be in such a magnificent shop. I've been to all other book stores in slc. Don't get me wrong they're great too. However, there is certainly something special about Ken Sanders."
"One of my favorite book stores of all time. Phenomenal selection and Ken is a wonderful person with an extensive knowledge of Utah history. Fun atmosphere and very helpful staff. I 100% recommend this place for any book lover."
