. March 5, 2008

The Antiquarian Book Fair which boasts ‘something for everyone’, will be held at Olympia, London from Thursday 5th June to Saturday 7th June 2008.
One hundred and fifty-eight leading international antiquarian booksellers are offering the ‘crème de la crème’ of what is on the market. ‘We have been bracing ourselves for a difficult year ahead, but so far we’ve been bowled over by the response to the Fair. We have more major dealers taking part this year than at any time this century!’ said Adrian Harrington, Chairman of the Antiquarian Book Fair.

No matter how obscure the subject there is bound to be a book about it from art, travel, gastronomy and science to sport, natural history, literature, fashion and children’s books The Fair, which is the largest and most prestigious event of its kind in Europe and the oldest established book fair in the world, encompasses illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, prints, maps, atlases, letters, autographs, vintage photographs and modern first editions right up to Harry Potter. This fair is the perfect place to browse, discuss, compare and buy; prices range from £50 to £500000.

The Fair is organised by the august Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association, which means that all its members have been carefully vetted and that the public can buy with confidence.
