After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, organizers of the 54th California International Antiquarian Book Fair are thrilled for its return to the Bay Area on Friday, February 11 through Sunday, February 13, at the Oakland Marriott City Center. Sponsored by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA) and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) and featuring the collections and rare treasures of over 100 booksellers from around the world, the three-day Book Fair offers a rich selection of manuscripts, early American and European literature, modern first editions, children’s books, maps, autographs, and antiquarian books on history, science, cooking, wine and a wide range of other topics.

 

This year’s Book Fair will include a major historical exhibit on wine and viticulture, courtesy of the Shields Library, University of California, Davis, which has been described as "the greatest wine library in the world.” In addition to books and journals, the collection includes maps, pamphlets, wine labels, wine merchant and wine auction catalogs, menus and manuscripts from renown grape and wine scientists, papers of wine writers and the archives of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) and the Wine Institute. There will also be additional book-related lectures and displays throughout the weekend.

 

Other highlights of the Book Fair include an interactive and entertaining exhibition that showcases local artists, organizations specializing in book arts, libraries and universities. Calligraphers, bookbinders, and a small press operator will once again be creating unique souvenirs for attendees to take home.
