The Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers

The Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (ANZAAB) is the national trade body for dealers in antiquarian and rare books, manuscripts and related materials in Australia and New Zealand.

Formed in 1977, ANZAAB is one of the 22 members of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).

ANZAAB is a member organisation promoting the standing, welfare, and growth of the local antiquarian book trade.

It aims to make statements on matters concerning antiquarian bookselling, book collecting, and library policy, and to bring public and political questions relevant to the business, a point of view that might otherwise be ignored.

It encourages between its members, and between booksellers generally, the observance of those courtesies and honourable practices traditionally associated with the trade; and likewise, to discourage practices capable of bringing disrepute to antiquarian bookselling.

In particular, ANZAAB encourages its members to achieve high standards of accuracy in descriptions of materials offered for sale.
