Firsts: London's Rare Book Fair 2024

Firsts London is one of the most popular and prestigious rare book fairs in the world, showcasing unique and unusual items from over 100 leading UK and international dealers. As the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association's premier annual fair, it attracts a diverse audience of collectors, dealers, enthusiasts and the curious alike.

Our theme for Firsts 2024 brings together the best the market has to offer when it comes to beautiful books, in the appropriate setting of the Saatchi Gallery. From bejewelled bindings to pop-up books, from Japanese woodblock printing to illuminated Qur'ans, Firsts London 2024 will gather over one hundred international dealers under one roof, promising to be an exceptional demonstration of the book as art and the art of the book.
