About Us

Captain Ahab's Rare Books was established in Miami, Florida by Amir Naghib in 2010. He moved the business to the Shenandoah Valley in 2012, where he operates from a 4,000 sq. ft. colonial-style home. Amir brings a decade worth of experience managing bookstores for Borders and The Hudson Group to the trade, as well as a Masters in Library Science from the University of South Florida. Captain Ahab's Rare Books pursues fine books in all fields, with a special emphasis in 19th and 20th century literature, manuscripts, association copies, mystery & science fiction. We are proud members of the Virginia Antiquarian Booksellers Association.
