Bibliophiles rejoice! The upcoming Rare Book Week in New York City is the largest gathering of its kind anywhere in the world. The event will be taking place from April 1st to April 8th.
According to publisher of Fine Books & Collections Webb Howell, Rare Book Week is, indeed, rare. “Throughout the year, there are book fairs, auctions, and events around the globe,” says Howell. “But you simply cannot find anywhere in the world the confluence of antiquarian book events found in New York during the first week of April.”

“Rare Book Week is headlined by the 54th annual New York Antiquarian Book Fair, which runs April 3-6, but is preceded by several rare book and manuscript auctions, including those at Christie’s, Heritage Auctions, Sotheby’s, and Swann Galleries. Several more auction houses, including Bonhams and Doyle New York, will offer collections to round out Rare Book Week after the fair weekend. Rare Book Week also includes The Manhattan Vintage Book & Ephemera Fair, known as the “Shadow Show,” and The Professional Autograph Dealer Association (PADA) Show.”
