Do you love books?

Each spring exhibitors from around the country convene at the Washington Antiquarian Book Fair, offering both serious collectors and budding enthusiasts rare books, manuscripts, modern first editions, autographs, prints, maps, drawings and other fine ephemera.

The Fair allows book lovers to touch, see and evaluate first hand the quality of the exhibitors’ offerings. Exhibitors have curated collections in virtually every area of interest imaginable: classic literature, science and medicine, geography, modern first editions, travel, sports, music, social movement, children’s and illustrated books and more. Buying is accessible as there are a multitude of price points.

Our goal is to facilitate your curiosity. We look forward to seeing you at #WABF17.
