Note from the organisers on 28 July 2020:
We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of the Chelsea Rare Book Fair, due to take place 6-8 November 2020 at Chelsea Old Town Hall. Following much deliberation, we made the decision based on the current and projected COVID19 travel restrictions for our international booksellers as well as social distancing measures which continue to alter the way we would traditionally hold book fairs. We are currently exploring the option of holding an online book fair to provide our members and exhibitors an alternative selling platform later in the year.
Looking forward to the Chelsea Rare Book Fair 2021, we are pleased to announce the dates of 5-6 November, with setup taking place on 4 November.
Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support, and we look forward to welcoming you back to London next year.
Whether you are an experienced collector or simply curious about old and rare books, the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair is not to be missed.
Held each autumn in the beautiful and historic Chelsea Old Town Hall, the Fair brings together more than 80 exhibitors specialising in antique books, first editions, maps, prints, and manuscripts from all over the world. Prices begin at just a few pounds and dealers are happy to guide you, making this an accessible and exciting venue for beginning collectors or those simply looking for an extra special Christmas gift.
