The 23rd Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair 2013 will take place over two days on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2 in the picturesque surroundings of the Chelsea Old Town Hall, King's Road, opposite Sydney Street, in London.
The intimate, yet high-quality Fair is directed and managed by the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association (ABA), the UK's oldest association of antiquarian booksellers and part of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).
It attracts around 80 exhibitors, both local and from around the UK and abroad, who specialise in all types of books, manuscripts and ephemera. Tickets are complimentary if pre-booked in advance online, or £10 (£15 for two) if bought at the Fair.
Over the years, the Chelsea Fair has become a fixture in the November calendar for book collectors and dealers from Britain, Europe and America. Warmer than Boston, more intimate than York, less formal than Paris, Chelsea has it all. Most of their exhibitors come back year after year as the sales continue to increase with the customers returning again and again.
