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
This year marks the 66th edition of one of the most popular and prestigious rare book fairs in the world.
