Celebrating our 5th Anniversary in Brooklyn! When my daughter texted me a photo of a sign which read “expo center coming this fall”, it was karma. That same morning, I had a conversation with a book dealer who mentioned that several dealers were discussing their desire for an antiquarian book fair in Brooklyn. I knew then that this was meant to be. I wasted no time in contacting the owner and contracted for the space for September 2014 after he assured me he could have it ready by then, just 4 months away. Well, it was almost finished as we moved in ,but, not quite. The rest is history. The Brooklyn Antiquarian Book Fair has quickly grown to be the largest independent regional antiquarian book fair in the country. As you walk the floor you’ll see top dealers from 20 states, England, Italy, and Canada. And, you’ll not only find books but great ephemera, fine prints and photography as well. If you’re not already a collector, why not find something that you love and start a collection. Our tag line is: “cultivating great collections one object at a time”. Enjoy the fair! It’s never too late to start a great collection. Marvin Getman Producer Borough President Eric Adams welcomed us to Brooklyn September 2014.
