The annual fall gathering for booklovers, returns to the Hynes Convention Center in Boston’s beautiful Back Bay, November 11-13, 2011, offering an engaging cross-section of the best printed works from around the world. More than 120 dealers will be in attendance, featuring fine and rare books, manuscripts, maps, prints and modern first editions. Participants come United States, England, Germany, Canada, France, Hungary, The Netherlands, and for the first time Argentina.
