In November 2014, professional antiquarian booksellers from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, England, Austria, France, and Hungary will gather in Copenhagen for one of the biggest antiquarian book fairs ever held in Scandinavia.
The Danish Antiquarian Booksellers Association, ABF, is excited to be hosting the annual fair, which alternates between Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen.
Apart from the many books on all subjects and in all price-ranges which will be offered for sale by the antiquarian booksellers, private book collectors will present treasures from their libraries in a number of exhibtions, featuring for example:
Kierkegaard and Camus
Southern Jutland 1864
Furthermore, Danish book binders will show their skills in modern book-art in daily workshops, among them: Klara Kolqvist, Co’Libri and Hanne Jensen. On both days, between 4 and 5 pm, professional book dealers will be evaluating books, prints and manuscripts brought to the fair by customers and collectors.
Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair
6-8 November, 2014
Round Tower, Copenhagen (Denmark)
The Round Tower is an extraordinary location in the centre of Copenhagen and the perfect setting for an antiquarian book fair. It was built by Christian IV between 1637 and 1642 as part of the Trinitatis complex uniting church, library, and observatory in one single building. The old library room, where the antiquarian booksellers will exhibit their treasures, was the first university library in Denmark.
Open Thursday – Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm.
The Scandinavian Antiquarian Book Fair is officially supported by the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB). The Danish Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association and ILAB welcome you to a weekend of celebrating the book!
