Since 1995 the Leipzig Antiquarian Book Fair has been part of the Leipzig Book Fair. Probably the first time ever that an antiquarian book fair was set up within a modern book fair. Since then the fair has been an integral part of the Leipzig fair offering rare books, prints, autographs and other antiquarian material. Exhibitors benefit from the growing numbers of the Leipzig fair each year.
