The New York Antiquarian Book Fair first took place in the 1960s and is now found in the center of the city on Park Avenue. The location of The Armory is perfect for this fair. It is reminiscent of the original Grand Central Depot and the great train sheds of Europe and is one of the largest unobstructed spaces of its kind in the city. The main exhibition hall is 55,000 square feet and when 200 dealers of antique books move in and set up, the place is transformed into something between a historic gallery and a museum.
As one expects from a museum, the New York Antiquarian Book Fair is a great place to learn about history. Visitors have the chance to look through documents and books created centuries ago and can also admire prints and illustrations dating back to the 14th century. This event is certainly much more than your average book fair and definitely should not be missed.
