Salon International du Livre Rare

The Salon International du Livre Rare et de l’autographe offers rare and antique books along with unusual decorative items to collectors and dealers. The event began in 1984 as an ancient book fair, created by the Syndicat national de la Librairie Ancienne et Moderne (SLAM), and in recent years joined together with the Objet d’art fair, before decided in 2020 to split again. Today this Parisian art fair brings together a mix of beautiful prints, antique manuscripts, original letters, etchings, fashion illustrations, watercolours and vintage posters and much more. Approximately 150 sellers bring their exhibits to the show where visitors can examine the unusual selection and purchase what’s on offer. This art fair offers the opportunity to view rare and sought-after books and one-off items of interest. A sister fair, the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, takes place annually in March.
