An Introduction to Collecting Books

Contact us to book

We are very pleased to be working with the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association again this year for the second Grasmere Book Fair.  The book fair will take place in Grasmere Village Hall on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 October with a wide variety of rare and antiquarian books, maps and manuscripts for sale by association members from around the country. 

We will be hosting a special Saturday afternoon talk with Roger Treglown, Vice President of the Association, on the important things to know and look for when collecting books.  Whether you already have a collection of your own or you’re looking to get started, come along to hear all about it from an expert and ask his advice.  Our Curator Jeff Cowton will also be on hand to show a few treasures of the Wordsworth Trust’s collection of Romantic books.

Cost: £5
