Do you read the AE Monthly, the online publication of Americana Exchange? If you aren’t aware of it, Americana Exchange is an excellent resource for booksellers and book collectors. Parts of the site can be used for free and parts are accessible with a paid subscription. You can check auction records, ask questions about books, and even list books for sale. Additionally, the AE Monthly (which is free) always has useful articles and catalogue reviews. The most recent AE Monthly has a great article on why book collectors should go to book fairs.
Being a proponent of the benefits of book fairs for collectors and sellers myself, I encourage you to read this article. Click here.
