Abstract

Legislation and Antiquarian Book Trade: how the different state regulations affect the international movement of antiquarian books

The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), with its 22 member associations representing 37 countries in the world, is the world umbrella body for antiquarian booksellers. ILAB and its members regularly face issues caused by the conflicting regulations of the different states in which its affiliates are dealing. Export and import laws, cultural goods policies, right of prescription, confiscations, right of pre-emption, declarations of national interest, as well as thefts and forgeries, are among the many aspects that ILAB tackle on a regular basis on behalf of the national associations it represents. Fabrizio Govi, Vice President of ILAB will outline the perspective of booksellers on this vast and complicated subject.
