Talks and Tours at Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair – November 1-2, 2013

Over its life, the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair has become a fixture in the November calendar for book collectors and dealers from Britain, Europe and America. Warmer than Boston, more intimate than York, less formal than Paris – Chelsea has it all. Dealer and collectors love the fair: it's friendly and varied, the dealers have time to talk, there are plenty of books but it's not overwhelming. 'See you at Chelsea' has become a phrase familiar to everyone in the British rare book trade. This year's Fair will offer visitors an excellent opportunity to find the perfect antiquarian book among thousands brought to the Chelsea Old Town Hall from 1st to 2nd November. Besides the exquisite, extraordinary and unique items showcased by the 82 expert booksellers from the United Kingdom and abroad, book lovers will enjoy an amazing number of book-related talks and tours throughout the weekend.

Réponse d'un Gaulois du vieux continent à un Indien du nouveau monde
