2017 PBFA Christmas Book Fair coming up soon

Anthony Smithson from the Keel Row Bookshop

The PBFA’s Christmas Book Fair is just around the corner. This year it takes places at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury on Coram Street, London, WC1N 1HT, on Saturday 2 December between 10.30am and 4.30pm. Once again, AbeBooks.co.uk is excited to be supporting this annual event.

Thousands of rare books, prints, photographs and ephemera will be offered for sale at prices to suit every enthusiast. The attending booksellers include Keel Row Bookshop, Worlds End Bookshop, Lucius Books, Peter Harrington, Jonkers Rare Books, Sophie Schneideman, and Hyraxia Books. Numerous sellers from outside London travel to the capital in order to exhibit at this pre-Christmas fair.

The hotel has a bar/cafe and a restaurant, and the Brunswick Centre is also next door with more services. (Fans of used bookshops will also know that the Skoob Bookshop is close by too.) Russell Square is the nearest Tube station and there’s always plenty to see and do in the Bloomsbury area.

Visit the PBFA website to download a complimentary ticket.

PBFA stands for Provincial Booksellers’ Fairs Association and its legacy dates back to a small book fair in Kensington in 1972. It now stages book fairs across the British Isles and Ireland, from Aberdeen to Dublin, from Chelmsford to the Isle of Skye. Members display a wide variety of books, both used and antiquarian, and also maps, prints and ephemera. PBFA sellers adhere to a code of practice regarding pricing and description of items on sale.
