The San Francisco three-day event is the largest antiquarian book fair in the world and will offer something exciting for every book lover and collector. Among the exhibited materials of over 200 American and international dealers, you can peruse and purchase rare items from medieval manuscripts to collectible editions of authors into the 21st century. There will be unusual books on travel and exploration (including maps), literature, the arts, science and medicine, children’s books, law and commerce, ephemera, Americana, and history in all eras and geographical areas. First, signed, and limited editions of many important authors will be present, plus collections of original photographs, prints by renowned artists from the 16th to the 21st century, and remarkable examples of book making, binding, and typography from throughout the world. Our professional booksellers, who are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America or the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, will be happy to share with you specialized knowledge of their subject fields, as well as to discuss your own collecting interests. You may also attend seminars and lectures on book-related topics, plus bring in some of your own books for appraisal on our Discovery Day. Of special note this year will be a major exhibit of rare Asian books, manuscripts, and artifacts from the collections of the C. V. Starr East Asian Library of the University of California at Berkeley.
