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.

Over 30 of the exhibitors in attendance are AbeBooks booksellers, including Alexandre Antique Prints, Maps & Books, Peter Harrington, Bauman Rare Books, William Reese Company and many more.

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 mhutchison@abebooks.com and lthompson@abebooks.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

at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre
North Building
100 (Lower) Level
Constitution Hall – Room 105
255 Front Street West

Cost is $15.00 for a 3 day pass (pre-order for $5.00 coupon towards admission).

We hope to see you there!
