Svenska Antikvariatfeningen (SVAF) was established in 1936, and belongs to the League since its beginnings. Current president is Simon Ström.

Since 1936 the Swedish trade has changed dramatically, as everywhere. With the growing influence of the internet, many Swedish dealers have specialized. As a consequence, the Antiquarian Booksellers Associations of Sweden, Denmark and Norway decided to set up an online database for their members ten years ago: went online in October 1998, it has 91 participants and over 1.7 million titles today.

In cooperation with the other Nordic associations, the SVAF arranged the 36th ILAB Congress and the 19th International Antiquarian Book Fair in Scandinavia.
In 2023, SVAF hosted the presidents of all national associations for the 2023 ILAB Presidents Meeting. A report can be viewed >> HERE and >> HERE
