2011 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair
After a 15-year hiatus, we’re pleased to report that last year, the Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair was back in business, and a definite success, with nearly 1500 visitors in attendance to enjoy perusing rare and collectible books, prints, maps, manuscripts and much more.
This year’s fair is sure to be a magnificent affair, with nearly 50 exhibitors, all members of their national antiquarian book associations and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) in attendance.
The event is mere days away and AbeBooks will be there to enjoy it all. We won’t have a booth at the fair, but we are proud sponsors, and AbeBooks material will be available at the registration desk. As well, Maria Hutchison and Lindsay Thompson from our Sales and Account Management team will be in attendance walking the floor, so be sure to seek them out to say hello.
Maria and Lindsay will also host a bookseller breakfast on the morning of Saturday, October 29th. If you’d like to attend the breakfast, or make arrangements to meet with Maria or Lindsay, they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com respectively.
The fair takes place over three days:
Friday, October 28th, 5pm – 9pm
Saturday, October 29th, 11am – 6:30pm
Sunday, October 30th, 12 noon – 5pm
