Firsts: London's Rare Book Fair

Saatchi Gallery 15-18 September 2022


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


This year marks the 65th edition of London's rare book fair, one of the most popular and prestigious in the world.

Applications to exhibit are now open.
