Don’t miss the Amsterdam Antiquarian Book & Map Fair


Anyone who loves antique books, atlases, old maps, fine prints, manuscripts, first editions and any other versions of the written/printed word should visit the Amsterdam International Antiquarian Book & Map Fair on 30 September and 1 October.

Visit the 2017 Amsterdam Antiquarian Book Fair

The fair has attracted a large number of prominent antiquarian dealers from the Netherlands and also Britain, the United States, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Portugal and even Australia. There will be something for everyone, from incunables to books printed in the 21st century. Anyone who just wants to browse is welcome and there is no admission fee.

AbeBooks.co.uk is thrilled to support this year’s event and we are looking forward to attending.

The exhibitors include a large number of members from the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Book Dealers. First-time exhibitors include Librairie Alain Brieux from Paris, Il Cartiglio Libreria Antiquaria from Turin, and Sophie Schneideman Rare Books from London. Collectors of German crime fiction will find the appearance of Michael Solder especially interesting. His antiquarian book shop in the Frauenstraße in Münster has served for many years as the back-drop for the long-running German TV crime series Tatort.

Just like last year, curators Reinder Storm and Adriaan Plak from the University of Amsterdam will be giving specialist guided tours on Sunday around the stands.

The fair will be found on the first floor of the Marriott Hotel, Stadhouderskade 12, Amsterdam, and is centrally located between the Leidsche Plein and the Vondelpark. It will be open on Saturday from 1pm to 6pm and on Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
