Opportunities for the rare book smitten

After a two year break due to the pandemic and strict border closures in Australia, the Australian & New Zealand Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ANZAAB) is excited to announce the return of the Melbourne Rare Book Fair, the major annual book fair of ANZAAB and one of only a few rare book fairs in the Southern hemisphere.

Now in its 49th edition, and 50th year, the Melbourne Rare Book Fair will again feature rare and wonderful books, manuscripts, ephemera, prints (and much more) from the best rare book and antiquarian dealers across Australia and New Zealand and overseas.

The Fair will be held Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th July at Wilson Hall, the University of Melbourne.

Thursday 7th July 6pm - 9pm

Friday 8th July 10am - 5pm

Saturday 9th July 10am - 4pm

Join us (and more than 20 other antiquarian book dealers) for what will be a wonderful weekend of bookish joy.
