Firsts – London’s Rare Book Fair (Online)

The third edition of the ABA’s online fairs, Firsts Online will take place from 27th November to 2nd December going live at 2pm GMT on Friday. Following the cancellation of the Chelsea and Edinburgh Rare Book Fairs in 2020, this particular edition of Firsts Online is dedicated to the booksellers who historically would attend these events.

Visitors can expect a wide range of rare books, manuscripts, ephemera, maps and prints at both accessible and higher price points. Our online fairs have previously attracted over 115 international booksellers, and for the first time, they will each be showcasing up to 20 items on their highlights page.

The ‘Exhibitors Highlights’ section will be launched on Friday at 2pm, visitors will be able to click through to the highlights page and search items by exhibitor, keyword, tag, speciality and price.
