2012 - Toronto Preview

Published on 09 Dec. 2013

After a fifteen year hiatus, the 2010 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair was a great success and featured most of Canada's finest as well as many top international antiquarian booksellers. In 2012, this outstanding show will again bring booksellers and bibliophiles together for a three day event. Sponsored by the ABAC, the 2012 Toronto International Antiquarian Book Fair joins the prestigious San Francisco, New York and Boston fairs on the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers’ (ILAB) 2012 North American calendar.


As the only international antiquarian and collectible book fair in Canada, the TIABF features exhibitors from across Europe and North America, among them: Aquila Books (Calgary), Attic Books (London), Bauman Rare Books (New York), Wilfrid M. de Freitas (Montreal), Paul Foster (London), Peter Harrington (London), Donald A. Heald (New York), David Mason (Toronto), Patrick MacGahern (Ottawa), Bernard Quaritch (London), Bjarne Tokerud (Victoria), and Stephen Temple (Toronto). All exhibitors are members of their national associations and of the ILAB and are, therefore, among the world’s foremost booksellers.

They will bring a wide ranging selection of books, maps, prints and manuscripts including travel and exploration, natural history, science and technology, children’s and illustrated books, fine press and limited editions and modern first editions as well as interesting and unusual books of all kinds.
