The 52nd Annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair
March 21, 2012  | 
Declared by the late Andy Rooney of CBS’ 60 Minutes as the “Best Book Fair in the World,” the New York Antiquarian Book Fair returns to the Park Avenue Armory for its 52nd Anniversary. Sponsored by the prestigious Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the 52nd Annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair promises to be our best exhibit to date.

Over 200 expert dealers from all over the world will fill the historic Park Avenue Armory with rare books, illuminated manuscripts,
autographs, maps, and finely bound volumes. Books ranging from history, law, philosophy, to children’s books, fashion, art, and more can be found with a wide price range. This year’s show features a record number of dealers. There’s sure to be something for everyone.

The first chance to view merchandise and make purchases will be at the preview, Thursday, April 12 from 5pm – 9pm. Tickets are available for $35 and may be purchased at the door.

A favorite tradition, Discovery Day gives visitors, with admission, the opportunity to bring their own rare books, manuscripts, maps, etc. (up to 5 items) for advice and free appraisals from Exhibitors on Sunday, April 15, from noon – 3pm.

The New York Antiquarian Book Fair will take place at the Park Avenue Armory at 67th Street, NYC, April 13 – 15, 2012.
Hours are Friday from noon to 8pm, Saturday from noon to 7pm, and Sunday from noon to 5pm. A café and bar will be
open during show hours. Admission is $20 daily, $30 for a two-day pass, or $45 for a run-of-show pass. Special rates for
students, groups and library associations are available. The Park Avenue Armory is wheelchair accessible.
