Sir David Attenborough, the much-loved and admired veteran naturalist and television presenter, is an avid collector of rare books and will be opening the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ABA) flagship 61st Fair on Thursday 24th May 2018 at 12pm at Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park. For the last 20 years the Fair, which is one of the largest and most prestigious rare book fairs in the world, has taken place at Olympia but this summer it is moving to its new home – the attractive Battersea Evolution venue in Battersea Park.
As Sir David Attenborough says “You could say that, after so many years at Olympia, the Fair has indeed evolved. Most living organisms do.”
The 160 plus British and international exhibitors will be showcasing a wide range of rare books, manuscripts, maps, prints, ephemera and original artwork which will include Medieval museum quality manuscripts to modern day first editions such as Harry Potter. Prices will range from tens of pounds to hundreds of thousands of pounds, and the ABA are sure there will be something
which will appeal to everyone from serious collectors to those who are new to book collecting. Visitors of all ages, who wish to buy and sell books, are expected to come from all over the British Isles, Europe and the world to visit the three-day long Fair for which admission is free of charge.
