2021 California Antiquarian Book Fair
The 2021 California Antiquarian Book Fair will be our 33rd California fair, though this year it will be a digital fair running from Thursday 4 March through Saturday 6 March. Every year until now we have taken a booth next door to our good friends at William Reese Company of New Haven, removing the wall between the stands and between us showing the best of America and Australia. Times change.
So this year we can’t be there physically while the world takes a breath, but we have made a selection of rare material to exhibit online in the spirit of the wonderful annual show, the west coast meeting of the biblio-tribes.
