Back from the New York Antiquarian Book Fair with heaps and piles of praise upon our heads and on those of the Book Dealers.
Several eminent dealers, representing, we think, the majority opinion, stated that the New York Antiquarian Book Fair is without a doubt the best book fair in the WORLD! High praise from high places. Frederik Muller of The Netherlands said that ” this fair is better than all the other eight fairs I do rolled into one”. Mark Heim of Biblioctopus said much the same thing.
We thank all those who participated, the book dealers, the collectors, the librarians, the young aspiring families looking for children’s books, and the browsers. We thank all those who worked with us, our contractors, coat checkers, ticket sellers, cafe servers, the porters, really so many to thank.
We look forward to 2012 with a real sense of ambition for another and even better New York Antiquarian Book Fair.
Watch this space for additional comments as they pop up in the coming weeks.
