Yesterday kicked off the 52nd annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair held at the Park Avenue Armory. For anyone who has ever attended an antiquarian book fair, this one tops them all. High-end book dealers come from all over the world to display the most interesting and rare books that are still available for purchase. To walk in the doors is to enter another world – a ‘living museum’ of sorts. It is truly an experience unlike any other for those who love books, history, art, or are drawn to the things of the past. The Americana Exchange calls the Fair “the signal event for book, maps, manuscripts and ephemera collectors in America” as it “attracts the most important dealers, institutions and collectors from across the United States and around the world.”
This year we are in booth A20. We hope to see you there.
