Highlights

Get ready to tango: Brooklyn’s Lizz Young will have on hand this bright, lovely copy of Venga Champan, printed in 1926 and featuring the artwork of French poster designer Robert Valerio. Price: $100.

Fair goers will surely appreciate the work of bookbinders and book restorers Jack and Taff Fitterer of Indian Lake, New York. Seen here is a unique, full leather binding by Jack of White Tulips by the poet Ronald Baatz, hand-press printed by Leonard Seastone at The Tideline Press, 2003, in an addition of thirty copies. Price: $2,200.

British bookseller Jonathan Kearns will showcase this inscribed copy of The Yellow Wallpaper (1901). Though a second edition, the book is rare, and according to the bookseller, “copies signed or inscribed enter a whole new realm of rare which verges on purely theoretical.” Price: 15,000 ($18,750).

The Mackus Company of Springfield, Illinois, will exhibit this exquisite manuscript leaf depicting St. Augustine from the Llangattock Breviary, in Latin, Ferrara, c. 1450. Price: $14,500.

Russian postcards, photographs, and ephemera will be offered by New York’s Rare Paper. Of particular note: this Boris Klinch photomontage postcard published by Soiuz Photo in 1930s. Price: $1,000.

Philadelphia-based Zoe Abrams Rare Books plans to show this exceptional album of 424 engravings, ca. 1745-1805, spanning religious, erotic, pastoral, and classical subjects. Price: $850.
