NEW YORK – The ABAA New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF) returns to the Park Avenue Armory in New York City from Thursday, April 27, through Sunday, April 30 for its 63rd edition.
The NYIABF is a cultural pillar of New York and returns as a much-anticipated highlight of the busy spring season. Universally referred to as the world’s finest antiquarian book fair, NYIABF is excited to include nearly 200 exhibitors this year from around the world, continuing to live up to its reputation as a highly international fair. This year, it welcomes exhibitors from 16 different countries including Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
An impressive number of US exhibitors also highlight the incredible wealth of material available stateside. Exhibitors will present a vast treasure trove of items: rare books, maps, illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, fine bindings, illustrations, historical documents, prints and print ephemera.
Fair highlights encompass art, science, medicine, literature, history, gastronomy, fashion, first editions, Americana, philosophy and children’s books. From the historic and academic, the religious and spiritual to the bedrock of secular culture, as well as finance and politics, to name a few, the fair boasts offerings in every conceivable genre and subject.
Several of the 2023 exhibitors have participated in the NYIABF since its inception, attesting to the fair’s longevity and relevance to its dealers and audiences.
