Celebrating our 44th year!

Come join us at the Washington Antiquarian Book Fair: the only curated festival of rare, collectible books in the D.C. region.

Whether you're a serious collector or budding enthusiast, our exhibitors from across the country have something spectacular for you — including rare books, manuscripts, modern first editions, autographs, prints, maps, drawings and other fine ephemera — at a multitude of price points.

At WABF you can see, touch, and evaluate first-hand the quality of the exhibitors’ offerings. You'll find thousands of curated collections in virtually every area of interest.

Our goal is to facilitate your curiosity. We look forward to seeing you at #WABF19 when we return to the Holiday Inn, Rosslyn.
