The University Companies officially began in 1979, but it was more than ten years prior to this that founder John Reznikoff first began collecting. During nearly 40 years in business, University Archives has bought and sold about $300 million of autographed books and manuscripts. The Reznikoff name is synonymous with authenticity in the autograph world. He is the only expert who consults with both PSA/DNA and JSA, accepted third-party companies in the trade, and he is also regularly called upon to assist dealers and major auction houses in the book and manuscript trade. In addition, Reznikoff's skills have been used in State and Federal court and by many different agencies of law enforcement, including the FBI. This means that your purchases are backed by a level of knowledge and integrity that is second to none.
In February 2021, the firm moved to new headquarters in Wilton, Connecticut. Our new home is a 6,000-square-feet space in a Class A corporate office building with a 1,500-square-feet temperature-controlled and fully secured storage facility that can house bulkier consignments.
