About the fair
The 37th Amsterdam International Antiquarian Book Fair will be held in the weekend of 30 September & 1 October 2017 in the heart of the book-loving city of Amsterdam. This major two-day event is the largest and most prestigious antiquarian book fair of the Low Countries, showcasing rare, unique and unusual items from 40 Dutch and international dealers. The fair will be held in the Amsterdam Marriott Hotel.
The Amsterdam Book Fair is presented and managed by the Dutch Antiquarian Booksellers' Association (NVvA), in collaboration with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB). These internationally recognized badges of excellence guarantee the accuracy of description and authenticity of all items for sale, as well as the professionalism and knowledge of the participants.
From incunabula to modern signed first editions, visitors to the fair can literally hold history in their hands as they view and buy museum-quality books, maps, prints, manuscripts, ephemera and original artwork.
The newly elected book fair committee consists of the members Laurens R. Hesselink, Sascha Kok, Jeroen Schierenberg, Leo Smiet and Jeroen Zaal.
