Universally referred to as the world’s finest antiquarian book fair, the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America's (ABAA) New York International Antiquarian Book Fair (NYIABF), produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates is proud to showcase over 200 exhibitors in 2022. Exhibitors will present a vast treasure trove of items: rare books, maps, illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, fine bindings, illustrations, historical documents, prints and print ephemera.


The fair’s specialties encompass art, science, medicine, literature, history, gastronomy, fashion, first editions, Americana, philosophy, children’s books and much more. From the historic and academic, the religious and spiritual—to the bedrock of secular culture, finance, politics—the fair boasts offerings in every conceivable genre and subject.

Tickets to Come


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 world's premier antiquarian book fair.

The New York Times, 2020

"Who said print is dead? ...the world’s finest antiquarian book fair proves otherwise."

Wallpaper*, 2020

“In this digital age, rare books may seem like a sleepy trend from a bygone era. But the art of rare book collecting is alive and well, and nowhere is it more evident than in the New York International Antiquarian Book Fair.”
Galerie, 2020

“It doesn’t take a history or musical fan to recognize the great importance of the collections on display at the New York Antiquarian Book Fair.” – Forbes, 2018
