Objectives

  • engender public awareness of the value of printed books and epherma as vital records of civilization; as tangible links to great minds of the past and present: and as works of art
  • promulgate ethical practices and professional conduct in the membership
  • organize and conduct an annual Tennessee Antiquarian Book Fair
  • sponsor and provide continuing education about the various facets of book collecting for booksellers, collectors, and the public
