residents in Clitheroe are being invited to take along their books for a free valuation by professional booksellers.
Clitheroe’s annual antiquarian and out-of-print bookfair will be held at St Mary’s Centre, Church Street, on Saturday, March 5th, from 10 a.m. to 4-30 p.m.
Specialist dealers in a range of fields, including antiquarian, fine bindings, children’s books, Lancashire local history, crime fiction, literature, natural history, illustrated, and military will be sharing their knowledge with visitors at the event organised by the country’s biggest antiquarian trade association – the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association.
Organiser Neil Summersgill said: “Our members are experts in a wide variety of areas and the Clitheroe fair will be a chance for people to bring along books and manuscripts for a free valuation by knowledgeable specialists. The internet might still be handy for buying and selling books but people like the reassurance of dealing with experienced sellers face-to-face.”
