The Manhattan Rare Book and Fine Press Fair returns to the Upper East Side for one day only, inviting booksellers and bibliophiles from around the world to share their love of antiquarian books, fine press, ephemera, historic photography, and more on Saturday, April 6 in the auditorium of the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer.

“Whether you’re looking for a Jane Austen first edition, a daguerreotype or an artist’s book, we’ve got you covered,” said Jodi Tolan, Director of Operations for Rare Books LA, the new promoter of the book fair.

The Upper East Side will be the epicenter of rare book activity. The Manhattan Rare Book & Fine Press Fair takes place across the street from the Park Avenue Armory, where the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America is hosting the largest antiquarian book fair in the world.

“We are excited to play a part in bringing the book community together and offering a space where a wide variety of material at a range of price points is available,” Tolan said.

The Manhattan Rare Book & Fine Press Fair will feature more than 70 exhibitors, including contemporary book artists who are members of the Fine Press Book Association.


Tickets are $20 in advance on Eventbrite (use the code web for 50% off!) or $25 at the door.
