2019 sees the eighth Melbourne Rare Book Week (MRBW) and the 47th Australian Antiquarian Book Fair, presented by the Australian Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (ANZAAB) and Rare Books Melbourne (RBM). 

The program will be presented by both regular and new MRBW partners. It will include a wide variety of interesting topics on book-related themes, and entry to all events is free of charge. There will be something for all interests and taste. We welcome bibliophiles, established collectors and those new to book collecting.

MRBW does not come without cost. Donations (tax deductible) to assist us with the ongoing staging of this now internationally recognised Melbourne event would be gratefully received by the Treasurer, Jonathan Burdon.
