Grand Palais Éphémère
Champ-de-Mars, Place Joffre
The French Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, SLAM, is pleased to announce that the Paris Rare Book and Graphic Arts Fair will be held from 23rd to 25th September 2022.
As in 2021, this key rendez-vous for collectors, the rare book trade or anyone interested in the world of rare books, will take place in the Grand Palais Ephémère, a temporary structure which houses the most emblematic Parisian cultural events while the Grand Palais itself is closed for renovations.
Perfectly situated between the Ecole Militaire and the Eiffel Tower, the building fits elegantly into the prestigious Champ-de-Mars site and is easily accessed by public transport.
The Fair will refocus on the world of books, autographs and graphic documents: booksellers as well as drawing and print galleries will be happy to share with a large public the timeless appeal of our written, printed and illustrated patrimony.
A unique event in the world of books and works on paper.
GUEST OF HONOUR: THE VERSAILLES MUNICIPAL LIBRARY
The Central Library has considerable holdings of historical and local importance: from cuneiform tablets to 21st-century artists' books, these include around 2,700 manuscripts, 120,000 printed books, 8,000 prints, as well as important collections of coins and medals, photographs, drawings, paintings, sculptures and objects, either from Revolutionary confiscations or acquired later through donations, bequests or acquisitions. Among the library's remarkable holdings are the manuscripts of Madame de Maintenon, part of Marie-Antoinette's and Madame du Barry’s libraries, the Goujet collection of rare 16th-century poetry and literature, incunabula, livres de fêtes, manuscript and printed music, and numerous books of royal or princely provenance.
