VABA 2014-15 brochure available online!

For more than thirty years, almost since its inception, the Vermont Antiquarian Booksellers Association has issued a printed guide to member shops. Available throughout the state at member bookshops, chamber of commerce displays and welcome centers, the VABA Brochure, as it is called, has been very popular with native Vermonters and tourists looking for collectible and hard-to-find books

The VABA Brochure is still being published on an annual basis. You can pick up a copy at any member bookshop, or have one mailed to you, free of charge, by contacting Joseph Trenn, the Book Shed, Lake Road, Benson VT 05731. Joe’s phone number is (802) 537-2190, and his email address is bookshed@shoreham.net.

We are pleased to include a PDF of the VABA Brochure here, on the official VABA website. Click on the link below to open and/or download the latest edition. The file will open in most browsers. If you have the Adobe PDF Reader on your computer, you can also right click on the above link and save the file to your computer for offline reading and printing.

Why Would You Go To A Book Fair?

If you like books, whether you buy them to read, collect them, or collect and read them, the book fair is the place to go. Where else can you go where 35 to 45 different booksellers bring their best books to sell? Even in this age of internet bookselling, there are many desirable books that do not get listed online, but can be found at a book fair.

PrehistoryOfSex

Here you will find an incredible concentration of first editions, fine bindings, vintage postcards, pamphlets, prints and other ephemera. Instead of visiting forty separate shops, you can visit their owners and peruse their samplings in one afternoon!

Many of the dealers have their own interests. They are always glad to “talk shop” with you about your particular interests in books.

If you are thinking about selling your private library, go to the book fair to find which booksellers might be interested in looking at your collection.

You are sure to see books and other materials that you never knew existed. You might find a gem that you just have to own, but you won’t find it unless you attend the VABA Book Fair this Sunday, March 23, at the Sheraton in Burlington, VT (additional information at http://www.vermontisbookcountry.com/ ).
