Stuttgart, Germany — Even though an in-person fair is not yet possible due to the ongoing pandemic, the German Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, VDA, has kept with the tradition of its printed catalogue, an important component of the Stuttgart fair each year.

The much-anticipated catalogue of the Stuttgart Rare Book Fair 2022 has now been published and an electronic version of the fair catalogue is available for download here.

If you wish to order a printed catalogue at the cost of EUR10, please contact the VDA Office via email.

69 rare bookshops and galleries from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, England and the USA have contributed to this year's catalogue and once again represent the entire range of the antiquarian trade.

All items listed are available for sale immediately.
