Rare books were up for grabs in Greenwich Village Sunday at the the Antiquarian Book Fair on Hudson Street.
The fair is one of the biggest fundraisers for neighborhood school, P.S. 3.
Around 60 vendors from all over the country were on hand with hundreds of hard to find books.
"The Village show is very interesting because you see a lot of people that are from the Village that don't leave the Village to go to any other shows so it's a whole different crowd you get to see, and they're interested in books and very literate and usually very interesting to talk to," said Bruce Gventer, a book seller.
"This has a special place in my heart and it has it for this reason: it's laid back, it has a crowd of people, mostly Villagers, who don't necessarily come to other book fairs in the city. They're knowledgeable, they're nice," said Jack Nessel, a book seller.
