Melbourne Rare Book Week is a major attraction for book collectors, librarians and all who have a love of words, print on paper and literary heritage. Every year this wonderful period of free talks, exhibitions and Melbourne's Rare Book Fair just gets bigger and better!  Join our mailing list to make sure you hear about the plans for Melbourne Rare Book Week and Melbourne Rare Book Fair in 2018.   A short video of a past Melbourne Rare Book Fair can be viewed here.


Are You New to Antiquarian Bookselling? Have you recently become a bookseller?

Would it help if you could get regular advice from an experienced ILAB antiquarian bookseller in your field?

The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers has launched a free Mentoring Programme to help young or recently established booksellers throughout the world. The aim of the programme is to offer support and advice when it is most needed in the early days of a bookseller’s career. Experienced ILAB specialists are offering their time as unpaid mentors on all aspects of antiquarian bookselling: buying and selling, whether from bricks-and-mortar or on the internet, cataloguing, day-to-day operations, and book fairs. Whether you are looking for specialized advice from a dealer on the other side of the world, or face-to-face discussions with one closer to home, the ILAB Mentoring Programme may be for you. A link to the current list of mentors and their specialities can be found in the Education section on the ILAB website: www.ilab.org For more information and an application email ILAB
