And now to business. On Friday the 23rd International Antiquarian Book Fair opened its doors at the Palazzo di Re Enzo in Bologna. An amazing atmosphere – beautiful books in a beautiful location, with hundreds of visitors browsing the shelves and showcases of 125 exhibitors from Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Spain, Scandinavia, Canada, Great Britain, the United States, Australia and Japan. The exquisite offers represented the widest range of collectors’ interests: Rare incunabula like Dante’s „La Commedia“ (Venice 1491) or Colonna’s “Hypnerotomachia polihili” (Venice 1499) could be found in the showcases next to a spectacular autograph collection that depicts the history of the Italian Farnese family with letters, manuscripts and historical documents dated 1539 to 1729. Precious bindings attracted the collectors’ eye together with beautifully illustrated books like Gallesio’s “Pomona Italiana”  (Pisa 1817) or Fossati’s “Raccolta di varie Favole” (Venice 1744), modern art and illustrated books or a magnificent Buddhist painted manuscript from Burma.

A special exhibition showed the books that were submitted to the 15th ILAB Breslauer Prize for Bibliography 2010.
