MELBOURNE RARE BOOK
FOR THE LOVE OF BOOKS
Melbourne Rare Book Week commenced in 2012 as a partnership between ANZAAB, the University of Melbourne and eight other literary institutions. In 2014, over 40 free events were held at libraries, literary and historical societies and bookshops throughout Melbourne, attracting local, national and international visitors. Melbourne Rare Book Week is now well established in the City of Melbourne's event calendar. It is a major attraction for book collectors, librarians and all who have a love of words, print on paper and literary heritage.
Melbourne Rare Book Week culminates in the ANZAAB Australian Antiquarian Book Fair (Melbourne Rare Book Fair), held in the University of Melbourne's historic Wilson Hall during the last weekend of July. It coincides with the biennial University of Melbourne Cultural Treasures Festival and the annual Open House Melbourne.
