This major three-day event is one of the highlights in the world for book lovers and collectors – and centrepiece of London International Antiquarian Book Fair Week. At the Fair you can view, handle and buy books, maps, prints, photographs, manuscripts, ephemera and original art work spanning the centuries, many items of museum quality. All items are freely available. Here you may hold a remarkable piece of history in your hand. You can purchase a text as it first came off the printing press and bound by a craftsman hundreds of years ago - or the very latest collectable author’s first editions. Organised by the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, the fair welcomes nearly 200 of the world’s best dealers offering a wide range of fascinating books, maps and ephemera including historical items from the early days of printing to modern first editions: a must for all lovers of history and the written word.
