Event Information

From modest beginnings with just 20 exhibitors at the White Swan Inn in York in 1974, the York National Book Fair has grown into the largest, and many say friendliest, rare, antiquarian & out-of-print book fair in the UK and Europe.

At the York September Book Fair, you will find books over 500 years old, be able to review copies of recently published works, and everything in between. The book fair will take place at York Racecourse. This venue is very easy to reach, there is unlimited free parking, and also a free shuttle bus from the Railway Station (Memorial Gardens) to the Fair every 20 minutes.

Who Will Enjoy The Fair?
Anyone interested in books and reading. This is not just a Fair for dealers, but is open to everyone young and old, and a great place to start collecting. With over 100,000 books for sale, where else can you look at, touch, enjoy, and even purchase so many rarities under one roof. If you are already a collector then attending the York National Book Fair is a great opportunity to meet new dealers in your area.

"One of the most enjoyable book fairs I have visited for a long time. The figures speak for themselves."
Rare Book Review

"As someone who travels 6000 miles to the York Fair it is my main buying event of the year."
Mark Weber, Bookseller, Tucson, Arizona.

"I save and bring my very best books to the York National Book Fair."
Exhibitor at the York Fair

"Start Collecting Books Now" - aimed at reaching a public who haven’t started to collect books yet, but who might want to, “Start Collecting Books Now”, is a recent PBFA initiative.  Pick up a booklet at the fair, or email info@pbfa.org to receive one in the post.

Books, Prints, Maps & Ephemera
Held over two days, over 150 of this country's leading booksellers offer for sale a breathtaking diversity of books, as well as posters, ephemera, manuscripts, maps & prints, ranging in price from just a few pounds up to tens of thousands of pounds. This year we also welcome a number of dealers from overseas.
