The ABA Chelsea Rare Book Fair


Held each autumn in the beautiful and historic Chelsea Old Town Hall, this 29th edition of the Fair (1-2 November) brings together more than 80 exhibitors specialising in rare books, first editions, maps, prints, manuscripts and ephemera from all over the world. 

There's something for every interest - poetry, children's classics, modern fiction, gardening, cookery, sport, military, crime, art, architecture, travel. Dealers are happy to guide you, making this a friendly and inspiring venue for all collectors - whether established or beginner - or those visitors simply looking for an extra special Christmas gift.
