From December 3-5, 2010, rare book dealers from Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States will showcase rare and beautiful books and prints at the 4th Hong Kong Antiquarian Book Fair, among them booksellers from Japan, China, and Hong Kong, such as Picture This, Lok Man Rare Books and Indosiam Rare Books. The fair, which took place for the first time in 2007,  is organized by Paul Feain of Cornstalk Bookshop in Sydney (Australia), Mitsuo Nitta of Yushodo in Tokyo (Japan), and Christopher Li of Swindons Books in Hong Kong.

In an interview for the China Daily Paul Feain, antiquarian bookseller for 30 years and a long-time ILAB Committee member,  talks about the importance of printed books in the history of mankind, the great works of 20th century literature, art, politics and philosophy, about the passion of book collecting and Hong Kong as an attractive market place for rare books and manuscripts, arts and antiques.
