Save the Date for 2025

April 3-6


Park Avenue Armory
643 Park Avenue, New York
Between 66/67 Streets

The Armory’s 55,000 square foot drill hall, reminiscent of the original Grand Central Depot and the great train sheds of Europe, remains one of the largest unobstructed spaces of its kind in New York. A marvel of engineering in its time, it was designed by Regiment veteran and architect Charles W. Clinton, later a partner of Clinton & Russell, architects of the Apthorp Apartments and the famed, now demolished, Astor Hotel.

The Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America's (ABAA) New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF), produced and managed by Sanford L. Smith + Associates, has become the world's leading antiquarian book fair in its 60+ years of existence. Once a year, exhibitors from across the world convene at New York City's historic Park Avenue Armory, presenting a trove of materials including rare books, maps, illuminated manuscripts, fine bindings, illustrations, historical documents, photographs, prints, memorabilia, and ephemera. The fair’s specialties encompass art, design, popular culture, science, medicine, literature, history, gastronomy, fashion, music, philosophy, and much more. 

This book fair is officially sanctioned by the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. This means that the consumer can rely upon the experience and professionalism of participating dealers and the authenticity of the items available for purchase. Simply stated, all books, manuscripts and related material have been carefully examined for completeness and bibliographic accuracy.
