As ABA bookseller and Antiques Roadshow expert Justin Croft puts it, 'Whether you are a seasoned collector or just curious about the rare book trade, Chelsea is a must. It is a firm favourite in the bookfair calendar. There are world-class dealers but also a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of time to get up close to the books on offer and to talk to the booksellers. There are always surprises... some of my all-time favourite buys have been at Chelsea.'

Whether you are an experienced collector or simply curious about old and rare books, The ABA Chelsea Rare Book Fair is not to be missed.
