THE VIRTUAL ANTIQUE & RARE ART on PAPER – MAP - GLOBE & BOOK FAIR focuses exclusively on the collector of rare books, globes & instruments, atlases & maps and prints, drawings and watercolours on paper. ! Facsimile's and reproductions are not offered in the Fair !

Started in October 2008 as an antique map fair, the Virtual Fair has been enlarged with sections ‘ART on PAPER’, 'GLOBES & INSTRUMENTS' and ‘RARE BOOKS’, widening the scope of the Virtual Fair considerable, attracting an increasingly growing number of collectors with varied interests.

The homepage of the Virtual Fair is the place to be for attracting the attention of the collector of antique and rare books, prints, maps and globes on the internet. The number of visits to the Virtual Fair will shortly reaches the 3,000,000 mark

Participating dealers have a banner on the homepage of the Virtual Fair with a direct link to the homepage of his own website, giving the collector the chance to contact directly the dealer or search his stock. Placing a banner on the homepage of the Virtual Fair also includes for the participating dealer the right to take part in the activity 'INTERACTIVE / AUCTION' in which visitors are invited to make a bid on a selected number of items in a confined period of time and the activity 'SALES'in which dealers can offer material for reduced prices. Items can be replaced by new ones, changing the offerings in the Virtual Fair constantly. Also the items can be de-activated and activated again at any moment. -

Price for a banner of ca. 120 x 100 pixels is euro 250 for a year I propose you take a banner on the virtual fair for the small annual fee of Euro 250.-. I have a continuous number of 40-60 visitors browsing the 15.000 + items in the Virtual Fair, who will see your banner while browsing. I put a number of your items under an anonymous heading. When a collector reacts I bring him in contact with you. If the contact leads to nothing you pay nothing, if the contact leads to a sale for you, you pay me a percentage. In this way you can sell without compromising your shop prices. Anyway you have a new name in your mailing list and you avoid the boring work that comes with the internet selling. I have this arrangement with other colleagues. The percentages are: 12 % of the selling price for items up to euro 5000 8 % of the selling price for items between euro 5000 and euro 10,000 4 % for items above euro 10,000 Uploading is fast and easy. It can be done as an individual item (like a page of a data base), or as a collection of items in an excell spread sheet. Further technical details and help are supplied.

It is also possible to have only a banner without participation for a period of a year. Costs are Euro 250.-

Auction Houses and Book, Print & Map Fairs can place a banner for the period of 14 days in advance of the date the Auction or Fair takes place. The fee is Euro 150.-

Please contact me, my e-mail address is for further questions.

I hope to welcome you in the Virtual Fair.
