The 2006 Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair runs from Friday November 17 through Sunday November 19 at Boston's Hynes Convention Center. The Book Fair website says, "Over 120 rare book dealers from the United States, England, Germany and The Netherlands are expected to exhibit and sell rare, collectible and antiquarian books, modern first editions, manuscripts, autographs, maps, atlases, and a plethora of other literary ephemera. Fine and decorative prints will also be featured. The seasoned and beginning collector alike, bibliophiles, memorabilia and ephemera enthusiasts, and sports fans will delight in the vast selection of the written word in all its many intriguing forms and facets.."
