The Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair returns to Toronto this year from October 12-14 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
“The Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of Canada is pleased to announce the 2012 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair.
After a fifteen year hiatus, the 2010 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair was a great success and featured most of Canada’s finest as well as many top international antiquarian booksellers and attracted almost 1500 visitors. In 2012, this outstanding show will again bring booksellers and bibliophiles together for a three day event. Sponsored by the ABAC, the 2012 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair joins the prestigious San Francisco, New York and Boston fairs on the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers’ (ILAB) 2012 North American calendar.
As the only international antiquarian and collectible book fair in Canada, the TIABF features exhibitors from across Europe and North America. All exhibitors are members of their national associations and of the ILAB and are, therefore, among the world’s foremost booksellers. They will bring a wide ranging selection of books, maps, prints and manuscripts for your perusal – including travel and exploration; natural history, science and technology; children’s and illustrated; fine press and limited editions; modern first editions and signed volumes; antiquarian and incunabula; as well as interesting and unusual books of all kinds.
Whether you are an experienced or novice book collector, a librarian or an archivist, a scholar or an academic, or are simply interested in books and the book arts in general, you will find something to your taste. We invite you to visit the fair, explore the booths, and purchase the treasures on display. Come and enjoy the show.” – Original post from Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair
