Sad news for British collectors of antique books: the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair recently released word that the event is to be cancelled. Fellow Antique Book enthusiast from across the pond, Walt Chantry shares the update:
The Chelsea Rare Book Fair was slated to take place November 6, 7 and 8, 2020 at Chelsea Old Town Hall in the United Kingdom. However, recently, organizers took to social media with a somber update: the Fair will not go on in London this year. While antique book collectors will understand the decision (largely brought on by COVID-19), this will still be quite the blow. No doubt, many collectors and rare book enthusiasts were looking forward to this year’s event. Instead, they will have to wait until November 5, 2021 to enjoy the unique antiquity of the Chelsea Rare Book Fair again.
