Time Out says

Now in its 63rd year, this festival for book collectors convenes at Park Avenue Armory for a full weekend of first editions, maps, manuscripts and other treasures from literary epochs past from nearly 200 exhibitors. It's considered the world's finest antiquarian book fair. 

Exhibitors this year hail from around the world including Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom. Fair highlights encompass art, science, medicine, literature, history, gastronomy, fashion, first editions, Americana, philosophy, children’s books and much more.

Prices for the items range from $50 to millions. You can buy tickets for just one day or for the whole show, which runs from April 27-30.
