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
"This place ought to be a must for any bibliophile passing through Salt Lake. Every time I've visited Ken's shop, I've left carrying out a book or two. Leonard Cohen music played the whole time I was there this afternoon—in memorium of the late great Mr. Cohen."
"I’ve frequented Ken Sander’s for years. This is the place to go for friendly people. It’s the place to go for unique finds. I’ve found countless first editions and books to fill my bookshelves, as well as postcards to fill my walls. I walk around downtown just to end up here. It is by far one of my favorite places to be in Salt Lake City."
