Venue: ILEC Conference Centre, Ibis London Earls Court Hotel, 47 Lillie Road, London SW6 1UD
We are, as always excited to be a part of Rare Books London together with ABA. We are returning again to the ILEC Conference Centre in the IBIS Hotel Earls Court, just two minutes walk from West Brompton Underground/Overhead.
We will have over 100 book dealers from the UK, Europe, the US and Canada, offering books, maps, prints, photographs, manuscripts and printed ephemera with prices to suit hunters, large and small. Whether you are thinking of entry level books to start a collection or a rare and valuable item to complete it you are sure to find it here. We will again be offering our free book appraisal service, just come to reception. This year, for the first time, we are pleased to be taking part in some of the LIVE guided tours with the ABA.
As well as a wide selection of books our visitors will find a cafe, bar and restaurant in the hotel. A free shuttle service runs constantly whilst the fairs are open between PBFA ILEC and the ABA Fair at Olympia.
There will be a cloakroom to leave your bags/coats. However, any small bags will be checked before entry into the fair and no books will be allowed into the fair. We appreciate your cooperation.
If you wish to attend both fairs, then the entrance fee is £15 or you can download your free ticket above.
