You're at a book fair. You think you've spotted a steal. You whip out your phone to check online. Rats! No hits! Now what? Heigh-yo, Silver!* ABPC rides to the rescue! Auction records culled by real people — and, for when you're really stuck, real people who (cheerfully) answer the phone, too!

Northampton Fair

We're super-excited to welcome the newest addition to the book fair calendar, the NORTHAMPTON BOOK AND BOOK ARTS FAIR. With its emphasis on book arts (think binding, printing, papermaking, and more), plus a star-filled panoply of guest speakers (Richard Minsky! Barry Moser! — to name-drop only two!), it's the perfect place to kick off your holiday season — and shopping!


The Back Bay is buzzing with books once again this November. Not to be missed is the annual scrum-fest known as the "SATELLITE SHOW," just a hop, skip, and jump across Copley Square from Boylston Street, where deals and steals mix with the refined and rare — you just never know what you'll find!
