FIRSTS: LONDON'S RARE BOOK FAIR
Thank you so much to all our exhibitors and visitors for making Firsts 2023 such a special fair.
We will return to the Saatchi Gallery 16 - 19 May 2024.
“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
