The Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association looks forward to welcoming visitors in person to Firsts, London's Rare Book Fair, now taking place at Saatchi Gallery in Sloane Square from 21-24 October. Marking the 64th edition of the fair, the event historically attracts over 120 international exhibitors.
“We are very lucky to have this kind of fair… it’s not elitist, it’s not specialist, you don’t have to be a scholar, you just have to be someone with an immense thirst for the glory of books.”
- Stephen Fry, actor, writer and book collector
