FIRSTS: LONDON'S RARE BOOK FAIR
Saatchi Gallery 18–21 May 2023
“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
Next year marks the 66th edition of one of the most popular and prestigious rare book fairs in the world. Whether you're a collector looking for the next masterpiece to add to your library, or a bibliophile who loves browsing second-hand classics, Firsts London is the book fair for you. Discover titles by distinguished authors, ephemera from celebrity readers and manuscripts from history's great moments, all in the heart of Chelsea.
