Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs in April and May. The Edinburgh Premier Fair and the UK Fine Press Book Fair have been rescheduled for November. The Oxford Premier has also been rescheduled for October. Keep checking our website for updates.
Event Information
Rare Books Edinburgh is a festival dedicated to rare, collectable, and important books and the history of the book. Edinburgh's finest bookish institutions have arranged talks, exhibitions, and workshops for collectors, bibliophiles, and book-lovers, the majority of them free to all.

The talks include introductions suitable for budding book-lovers and those merely curious about the history of the book, along with scholars delving into their latest research. Collections rarely seen by the public will be on show.  At the centre is Scotland's largest and most prestigious book fair, with specialist dealers in rare and collectable books from all over Britain (and farther afield) offering selections from their stock.

Free Entrance.  Everybody welcome.

The image is of The Royal Mile which is the historic heart of Edinburgh and also the stretch of road connecting Edinburgh Castle with Holyrood Palace, the Queen's residence in Scotland.
