On Thursday April 23, 2015, leading UK booksellers will pop up in Middle Temple, surrounded by the books of the Inn library.
Located in the heart of London’s legal quarter, Middle Temple Library is part of the four ancient Inns of Court, just a few minutes from Fleet Street, The Strand and Embankment and overlooking the river Thames.
The area around St Paul's is a traditional literary haunt. Indeed it has been so for centuries, making it a most logical – as well as most attractive place - for an ILAB Pop Up Book Fair on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day 2015. Middle Temple itself was built between 1562 and 1573 and remains virtually unchanged to this day. The library which holds over 250,000 books, journals and law reports will certainly be the perfect venue for this special kind of speed dating for book lovers, organized by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ABA). The ten exhibitors, who will offer books for sale on 23 April 2015 are a high-flying bunch, several of whom are fresh from the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, and even from TEFAF Maastricht.
This unique London lunchtime Pop Up Fair will run for only 2 hours between 12 noon and 2pm and then, as suddenly as it appeared, it will be gone again! Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy rare books and mark UNESCO’s World Rare Book Day in an historic part of London.
Come and browse the carefully selected books offered by 10 members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association in all price ranges and across a wide range of fields.
