Moon’s Rare Books is a collection of rare and antique Bibles, early Mormon books and documents, LDS scripture, classic literature, and early American and European historical documents. We specialize in early Mormon books, carrying several copies of the First Edition Book of Mormon and First Edition Doctrine and Covenants, as well as other documents which have contributed to Mormon and Utah history.
In addition to rare books and documents you can also find: Original art from Utah artists, unique collectibles such as movie props or historical artifacts, and antique furniture which include many early pioneer Utah antiques. While we include items online, most of our collection is available in our brick and mortar location in Provo, UT. We encourage visitors to contact us with any questions they might have..
Most often collectors have their treasured items placed in an environment where only they can be a part of it. Reid Moon and Moon’s Rare Books invite you to come walk the streets of our beautiful English village whether online or in person. We hope to see you soon.

During these wonderful events we exhibit rare collections and individual items, providing information on their unique history, where they’ve been for the past 150-200 years, and how these historical artifacts ended up in Provo, Utah.
