Although the U.S. may be out of the acute phase of the pandemic, one trend that has emerged in the rare book field is that virtual book fairs continue to be put on. While many organizations are running live, in-person fairs simultaneously, the virtual fairs give people farther afield a nice, convenient option to participate and view interesting material.
The ABAA Virtual Book Fair: New York Edition is the virtual component of the ABAA New York International Antiquarian Book Fair, and as such will feature material from hundreds of the foremost booksellers from around the world. As a virtual fair, collectors and librarians around the globe can enjoy the convenience of shopping the booths of hundreds of international sellers and discovering their latest acquisitions and rare finds.
As at the ABAA’s in-person book fairs, where novice and younger collectors have been excited by unique offerings at accessible price points, dealers at the ABAA Virtual Book Fair: New York Edition will offer “Discovery” items priced at $100 or less.
Featuring the finest rare books, manuscripts, autographs, periodicals, illustration, and ephemera, the ABAA Virtual Book Fair: New York Edition will bring the best of the ABAA New York International Antiquarian Book Fair to the world!
The Fair opens at 12 pm EDT on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 and will remain open continuously until 8 pm EDT on Thursday, May 5, 2022. Visit www.abaa.org/vbf for more information…
