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, will showcase over 180 exhibitors from April 27-30, 2023. Participants will present a treasure trove of items including rare books, maps, illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, fine bindings, illustrations, historical documents, prints, and print ephemera.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 bedrocks of popular culture, the fair boasts offerings in every conceivable genre and subject. In recent years, NYIABF has increasingly captured the attention of young collectors seeking one-of-a-kind offerings at more accessible price points.
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.

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.
