Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair Returns to the Hynes

The Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair is making its much-anticipated return to the Hynes Convention Center in downtown Boston from November 11-13, 2022. The 44th Boston Book Fair is the annual fall gathering for book lovers and collectors, featuring the top selection of items available on the international literary market, sanctioned by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).  
 
An alluring treasure trove awaits seasoned collectors and first-time attendees. More than 100 exhibitors, from 9 different countries–Canada, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, the UK, and the US–will exhibit the finest in rare and valuable books, photography, illuminated manuscripts, autographs, maps, historic documents, maps, fine bindings, original illustrations, ephemera, fine and decorative prints, and more.  A full list of exhibitors can be found at: https://bostonbookfair.com/exhibitors
 
Whether browsing or buying, the Fair offers something for every taste and budget—books on art, politics, travel, gastronomy, science. sport, natural history, first editions, Americana, fashion, music, children’s books, and much more—all appealing to a range of bibliophiles and browsers.  From the historic and academic to the religious and spiritual, from the exotic to the everyday—the Fair has selections in every conceivable genre and subject.  Attendees will have the unique chance to view rare and historic museum-quality items, offered by some of the most prestigious members of the trade.
 
“We are thrilled to be welcoming our stateside and international dealers and attendees back to Boston for the first time since the pandemic,” said Betty Fulton, CEO of CommPromo, producer of the Boston Book Fair. “Returning to the in-person format in a time when tangible, printed materials are more valuable than ever and continue to be a source of escape and comfort during a period of uncertainty, the Fair has never been more relevant and meaningful to our lives.”
 
In recent years, Boston Book Fair has increasingly captured the attention of novice and young collectors seeking one-of-a-kind offerings at more accessible prices. For attendees wanting to start a collection without breaking the bank, there will be dealers offering “Discovery” items priced at $100 or less – so there will be something for everyone.
 
Special events at this year’s fair will include in-person presentations that will be announced in early fall.  For more information, please visit www.bostonbookfair.com or call 617-266-6540.
