Cabinets of Bibliophile Curiosities – The New York Antiquarian Book Fair

From April 11-14, 2013 the Park Avenue Armory, New York is hosting The 53rd Annual  New York Antiquarian Book Fair.

Amongst the vast rows of shelving we found some of the most curious and beautifully designed historical, medical, literary, etiquette and art books. They include Midwifery, with hand-colored movable flaps (1833), An Archive of Photographs from the Wedding of Charles Bukowski and Linda Lee Beighle, a first edition of Andreas Vesalius’ De Humani Corporis Fabrica (1543), Andy Warhol’s The Philosophy of Andy Warhol with inscription and original drawings of Campbell’s Soup Cans, and incredible poetry books illustrated and designed by El Lissitzky.
