TIME: 11:00 am - 07:00 pm
An alluring treasure trove awaits seasoned collectors as well as new visitors at the 44th annual Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair (reimagined at the first-ever Boston Virtual Book Fair in 2020), held November 12–14, 2020. The event showcases the finest in rare and valuable books, illuminated manuscripts, autographs, ephemera, political and historic documents, maps, atlases, photographs, fine and decorative prints, and much more.
Collectors can virtually peruse the booths of every exhibitor in the Fair or quickly visit their favorite dealers, hosted in an easy-to-navigate online version of the traditional book fair booth. A search feature allows visitors to quickly browse by category, dealer or keyword—with each item featuring a brief description, condition and price—and they can contact dealers directly to learn more about the items for sale. Each exhibitor showcases up to 50 of their most interesting and significant pieces, creating a remarkable and diverse selection of items from around the world. Fresh items are available throughout the weekend as dealers continually restock their virtual booths.
With the Fair moving online, everyone around the globe can attend the Boston Virtual Book Fair, one of the oldest and most respected antiquarian book shows in the U.S.!
