LiBrisFair: Brisbane Antiquarian Book Fair

September 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

THE LiBrisFair ANTIQUARIAN BOOK FAIR, at the State Library of Queensland from the 16th- 18th of September, is the first to be held in Brisbane since the 1980s. Twenty or so years later and Brisbane appears to be back on the map of the antiquarian book fair circuit, with sixteen fabulous antiquarian booksellers joining us from all around Australia. These booksellers will be offering for sale fine, unusual, rare and beautiful books, prints, maps, photographs, manuscripts and ephemera. There is something of interest for everyone; with books from the 16th century up until the 21st century, and subjects ranging from art to natural history to military history. And it’s not just books that only Bill Gates could afford either; the fair is showcasing books varying in price points, therefore suiting all wallet sizes.  Some of the highlights of the fair include:

The First Part of the Life and Achievements of the Renowned Don Quixote De La Mancha. Illustrated by Salvador Dali. $80.00


The Pobble Who Has No Toes. $2550


Impressions of the Russian Ballet (deluxe set). $11,000


Monograph of the Trogonidae. $60,000
