Your site is a perfect match for information on our upcoming Boston Book, Paper & Photo Expo, May 4th at the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, Mass. We have prepared a whole press packet of articles, images and releases on the show. We’d love to submit them for use on your site, however, we don’t see a contact listed. Can you let us know the procedure for submitting such information.

We currently do not post any promotional material besides what is listed in the “Book Fair & Book Sale Calendar” page, and what is included as part of articles posted.

The 37th annual Florida Antiquarian Book Fair returns to St. Petersburg’s Historic Coliseum April 20 – 22, 2018.

The book fair is the third largest in the country and features more than one hundred specialized booksellers from all over the United States. This year’s theme, “The Book As Art,” celebrates the cultural influence of the written word.

Visitors will find books of every age and about every conceivable topic. Additional materials found at the Fair include maps, prints, postcards, ephemera, autographs and other paper collectibles. Items range in price from a few dollars to several hundred thousand dollars.

A complete list of the specialized exhibitors is available at

Friday, April 20th: 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, April 21st: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, April 22nd: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Friday evening’s admission, which includes a live music performance, is $10; the ticket is good for the entire weekend. Saturday’s admission is $10 for the weekend or $6 for the day. Sunday’s admission is $6 for the day and includes a free appraisal by members of the Florida Bibliophile Society. Children 12 and under, and students with valid identification, are free. Parking is free.

Ticket sales benefit the St Petersburg Public Library.

Discount coupons are available online at or on Facebook (search: “Florida Antiquarian Book Fair”). Discounted tickets can also be purchased online through Eventbrite.

Food and beverages, including cash bar, are available onsite. St. Petersburg’s Historic Coliseum, 535 Fourth Ave. N, is known as “the finest ballroom in the South.”

I have an old book called The Windmill Mystery by J Jefferson Farjeon. It says it is a Second Impression, February 1934. Is it of interest to anyone?
