What is ANZAAB?
The Australian & New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (ANZAAB), which was formed in 1977, has 56 full members today, who, together with the other categories of ANZAAB membership, associate, retired, life and honorary make up a total membership of 79.
ANZAAB is the professional body which represents the members of the antiquarian book business in Australia and New Zealand. It aims to promote antiquarian bookselling and collecting; it makes statements on matters affecting these topics on behalf of its members.

The association organises a regular series of antiquarian book fairs in major cities.
Like many national associations, ANZAAB is affiliated with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. Like other national associations it sets out standards of commercial behaviour to which its members voluntarily adhere. It encourages the observance of the courtesies and honourable practices traditionally associated with the trade. In particular, ANZAAB seeks to encourage its members to achieve high standards of accuracy in descriptions of materials offered for sale.
