NYIABF: A Fair for Rare Books, Maps, Manuscripts and More, New York


Running for a short time is the notable New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF). Open until March 11, 2018 the fair takes place at the Park Avenue Armory. Displaying some of the most treasured rare books and materials covering every genre, the fair is a must-attend event for book lovers and collectors.

Returning for its 58th edition, the fair is hosting more than 200 exhibitors from around the world. Produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates, the fair is known for its wide array of offerings, including rare books, maps, illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, fine bindings, illustrations, historical documents, and print ephemera, making it one of the most coveted destination for bibliophiles. A favored venue to the seasoned connoisseurs and scholars for decades, the fair has recently caught fancy of the young collectors as well with their unique trove of affordable materials. Officially sanctioned by Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) and International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), the fair offers materials in every genre and subjects, with specialties in art, science, medicine, literature, history, culinary culture, fashion, first editions, Americana, philosophy, children’s books and much more. Along with 115 galleries from the United States, this year’s edition will see participation of a strong contingent of international galleries from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Australia, Austria, Canada, Japan, Russia, Belgium, Sweden, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, and Argentina — with an offering across the history of literature from Pre-Gutenberg to the 21st Century.

The fair will take place from March 8 through 11, 2018 at the Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA.
