Antique books are traditionally the most authoritative sphere of collecting. Being a monument of cultural wealth, a document of literary history and an artifact, antique book is a fundamental value, preserving cultural heritage of a nation.
For 11 years Antique Book Fair, first held by organizers of "Russian Antique Salons" in 2005, has gained popularity among its "target audience" - collectors and connoisseurs of antique books. Comparing to other spheres of old art, antique books sphere is rather isolated, but nevertheless, it has got loyal partners and clients.

Lifetime editions of Russian classics, Russian avant-garde and science fiction books are of special attention to foreign collectors of Russian literature.
