New York Antiquarian Book Fair

This long-running fair welcomes 200 vendors from around the world each year offering rare antique books, first editions, medical journals, manuscripts and maps. The stallholders are enthusiastic about their passion and will happily explain all about the pieces they exhibit. Above all, each book is carefully examined for authenticity so that buyers can purchase the items with confidence. With a chance to search through books and documents created centuries ago, visitors can learn a great deal about history at New York Antiquarian Book Fair. They can also admire prints and illustrations dating back to the 14th century. With an important collection available that rarely offered for sale, this event is more than the average book fair. It takes place during the dazzling New York Art Week in March, at the same time for instance as The Armory Show, SCOPE Art Show or VOLTA.
