Just in time for your holiday shopping!  The Independent Online Booksellers Association offers its second virtual fair, running November 20-22 online at

More than 80 IOBA members from the United States and a number of other countries will be offering a wide range of books, ephemera, manuscripts, photographs, autographs, and maps over the three-day fair, including much that will be fresh-to-market.
Visitors will get the chance to view offerings of many dealers they may not have encountered before; for some dealers, this is their first fair.
Plan on visiting often as exhibitors will add more material each day, with many new listings on the final day offered at lower price points. Exhibiting dealers do not pay extra to participate in the fair -- it’s a benefit of their IOBA membership -- so they can offer material at lower prices, unlike other fairs that charge exhibitors to participate.

As with a live fair, no one will be able to see it all with one pass through the fair. Collectors will also be able to learn more about exhibiting dealers by visiting their IOBA profile pages at, where many will offer additional items for sale. In addition, the fair will feature entertaining and instructive videos and articles on November 21-22.

The fair will open at Noon EST (New York time) on Friday, November 20, and will run until 5 p.m. EST on Sunday the 22nd.  The Philadelphia Rare Books and Manuscripts Co. (PRB&M/SessaBks) is the exclusive sponsor of the fair.
