About the Fair


The ABA Rare Book Fair London is one of the largest rare book shows in the world, featuring more than 150 vetted exhibitors selling books, manuscripts, maps, prints and original artwork from all over the world.

There’s something for everyone, whether you are new to rare books or an experienced collector. Our exhibitors are happy to answer questions and help guide you, and expert-led tours of the Fair provide a behind-the-scenes look at book collecting. Visitors can also participate in hands-on printing and book binding workshops.

New Venue

Previously held at Olympia, the Fair has now relocated to beautiful Battersea Park on the river Thames, within easy reach of transport and only a stone’s throw from the art and nightlife venues of Chelsea.
